Mailman Developers: Is the web code set up so that so that admins could fairly easily assemble these UI widgets into a page that suits their usage?
Nope. It's all hard-coded.
Well, at least the hard code is already done! I love it when I get to do the easy part!<wink>
We can't wait to see the code you're going to contribute to do this. ;)
I wouldn't spend effort on waiting if I were you; I'm thinking in terms of Mailman 3.
But if you're in that big of a hurry, you can check out my xre.py from cvs.xemacs.org, the XEmacs/xemacs-builds/stephen module. It was somewhat inspired by this idea. The web announcement part is a little bit pipelined, and the overall structure is a pipeline. But it's a personal tool, so it's **real** crufty.
It's not obvious to me that it would be all that hard to do; what I was hoping for was for some people to chip in with "that's probably going to work, you'll just have to keep finding the stuff that needs to be in the interface, which will be tedious but do-able", or inversely, "you're hosed, because we really can't get away with building these certain pages in a pipeline like that."
