Sounds good. Is this instead of the news server integration ? Being done prior to that ? Or are they being developed concurrently ?
Is this meant to be a Mailman "alternative" to CPanel ? Or are you thinking of adding such things as posting to an email list via a Mailman web page ? In other words an (optional ?) Mailman created web forum.

And no, this is independent of any possible NNTP support and is probably happening first
Okay, though I expect that if a news server option were offered it might include a "common" database for email/news/web posts.
(although in open source, you never know what might happen), and no it is not a "Mailman "alternative" to CPanel" whatever that might be.
As a windows user the CPanel interface is all that I am familiar with.
It is a redesign of the existing MM 2.1 web interface
Okay, I haven't seen that.
(most of which is virtually unchanged by cPanel). I.e. all of the existing list admin, admindb, options, etc. web interface that you see in your cPanel installation is virtually unchanged from standard Mailman 2.1. This is a redesign of that interface for MM 3.
Sounds good. Particularly if one has a "Delete (or hide ?) archive" option. :-)
The ability to post from a web page could be part of this if there is enough interest.
Though I don't like web forums many people do. I am sure that a lot of people would like a web forum interface if it were offered as an "option".
For many people "Web Mail" is a handy way to check what is in their "home" mailbox when on the road, or at work.
The current web access to Mailman archives is very close already to a web forum IMO. All that needs to be added is a "reply" button and a "new post" button.
IF that page were offered, as a html page that administrators could alter, it would enable them to make things "prettier".
