I'm currently at UDS (Ubuntu Developer Summit) so I'm not able to look in detail at the moment, but to say I'm psyched would be an understatement! Really awesome work and kudos to everyone involved.
I'll play with the demos and provide more feedback when I get back, but in the meantime let me follow up on this:

I was mentoring for the project which worked on the archives, where we had two students, Yian Shang who worked on the web interface for the archives, and Priya Iyer who worked on integrating search. They've produced some great demos that you all need to see, and some code that I'd really like to see integrated into Mailman 3.
Do you want to integrate all of the archiver and search code into Mailman 3 or just some integration code? Despite the way Pipermail's always been bundled with Mailman 2, I'm not sure that's the most productive way to structure the project going forward. In fact, I'd like to split Pipermail out of the Mailman 3 bzr tree (and started to go down that path at one point) and MM3's architecture allows for much easier integration with external archivers (even multiple ones at the same time). So it might make sense to structure the Syster's archiver work as a separate project too.
Please do submit merge proposals against the Mailman 3 trunk for the changes. If you're (meaning Terri, Yian, and Priya specifically, but also applying to anyone in general) unsure about how to go about that, guidelines for reviewable branches, or any other related issue, please don't hesitate to ping me on #mailman next week and I can help walk you through it. I'm UTC-4 and generally online during working hours.
We'll also need to get copyright assignments to the FSF. Email me off-line to get that process started, or if there are any problems doing so.
