I'm a programming enthusiast and recently started working in
python about 6 months back, I have had experience in cryptography and many machine learning techniques. I started reading about mailman few weeks back and I have setup a local and server dev env successfully.
I also learned about previous year's GSOC project and I can see
mailman core is already ported to ver 3.4 however potorius / hyperkitty / mailman.client needs to be done. Also test suite would be interesting work to couple with all this. I would like to know if these 2 projects can be coupled for this year's work or not?
It is not decided yet, but it is expected that postorius and hyperkitty would be ported to be bilingual by this year's pycon. I suggest you look for other project, the list on the wiki will be updated soon.
Apart from that I also found few bugs while setting up env which
was mainly due to (var) folder creation while running mailman server from different locatin serving various instances. It seems unless I do it from path/to/mailman it returns an error. I will go through the code in over next few weeks and till then I can expect a reply for above projects.
The var folder creation in the currect directory is a design pattern
built for developers. So if mailman does not see any working instance of
itself in the current directory it starts a new instance with
directory in the new location. You can change this behavior in
mailman.cfg, look src/mailman/config/mailman.cfg for [paths.*] sections.
PS : The documentation for mailman setup is outdated I guess, reported that to @maxking
