Hi all, I'm planing to write a Zope Product that integrates with Mailman. In the first iterations the main goal is to provide users management of their mailing list account. In coming iterations I planing to extend with an administration management interface and archive access (with possible ZCatalog integration).
Are there anyone else doing stuff with Zope? And what I need to consider? Especially how to handle multiple simultaneous management accesses? (When and how do I need to use locks?) Any ideas are welcome?
We (Digital Creations) have a potential project that would modify Mailman to be able to run wih SQL storage of its information (primarily members and subscription information), which would then be managed through Zope.
(Hi Chris,) That's sound like a great idé! I suppost it would be integrated with the Portal Toolkit membership management as well?
ZCatalog integration wouldn't be too hard, honestly.
Probably not :-)
As I see it right know there might be problems with multiple users form diffrent thread acquiering a lock on a list.
How is this handled by the cgi-scripts in mailman?
