Request for MM project hire
I was just speaking to a client today who has a few thousand-ish one-way list on one of my boxes. They have a separate FileMaker database that holds each person's name, physical address, phone, and email address. They have been manually double-entering data into both this database, and their Mailman list. They don't want to do that anymore.
They called me today asking for a quote on somehow merging this, so there is only one database. I'm thinking perhaps some sort of extension to the current MM database to hold their additional fields would do it. If a person unsubscribes, it nukes them. If an email bounces, then it does as the bounce processing dictates, and nukes them if it should.
A web interface (with proper authentication) should be available for them to manually enter data, and I would guess they would also want at least a one-time import from their FileMaker database into this to populate all the current entries with the additional fields.
I'm not skilled enough in Python to do this myself... I'm wondering if anyone here is willing to take on the project. And in a somewhat-related question to this list, is MM 3.0 going to be the solution? Will it handle additional fields like this?
Please reply privately if you wish to take on the project, with a price guesstimate.
