I had discussed about the full anonymization project with Stephen and I had found that I had quite misunderstood the use case of that project.
So I have decided to go forward with applying for the mailman command line client project.
The deliverables of the project would be, at the least,
- Command line tools to perform tasks in the mailman client docs *
Any Extra useful functionalities that can be identified, such as export, backup * Other Useful tools like backup and restore. * Man Page entries for the new commands
Sounds good! But make sure to mark steps 2 to 4 as optional.
Also, I did not quite get the "/coming up with a //great layout /" part. Do you mean to build a custom shell for mailman? If yes, what extra functionality should it provide than the standard command line tools?
I don't know if I would call it a shell, but something like that, yes. I talked about it with Patrick Koetter a while ago (who is also a possible mentor for this project), and we had something *a little* similar to the mysql/sqlite3 client in mind. Similar meaning: You start the client (possibly providing some context option, like the database used) and then perform operations on a given context/object (in our case: lists, users, addresses, preferences) using predefined commands.
Ideally, the application makes all operations pretty easy, by using auto-completion, a good help function etc.
This is just a rough idea though, maybe you can come up with a better one... ;-)
