A little over a year ago I went on a search to find the best open

So if you want to leverage existing open source archiving or at least look at an example of what would be necessary to allow easy easy external archiving integration with Mailman you might want to look at Lurker.
I've looked at a few lurker archivers and I wasn't blown away by its
user interface. That's apparently highly configurable though.
Lurker's GPL2 so that's fine. I'd be quite hesitant about shipping
Mailman with Lurker because it's something we don't control and it's
not Python. But I would be totally open to working with the Lurker
developers on creating an easy bridge between the two systems.
Perhaps this dovetails with Jeff's suggestion of easier integration
with external archiving systems.
Does anybody have contacts with the Lurker community that could cross- post a new thread to get the discussion going?
(The same goes for any other archiver out there too.)
