last week I tried to translate all the html-files and mail messages into german. Doing this I noticed that most of the messages repeat often and are spread over different files (e.g. HTMLFormatter.py, MailCommandHandler.py aso.). Now I think about the following idea: Wouldn`t it be a good idea to substitute the messages with variables and to take the messages then out of a text-file? The advantage would be a "language independent" version of mailman. You would only have to translate the message-file into your preffered language without grabbing through various Python, HTML and Text-files. I think a "language independent" version could be a reason for a lot more people to use mailman instead of majordomo or something else! By the way: For me mailman is the most comfortable mailing list software around! Congratulations to the coders ! Response from the coders of mailman or other interrested people would be welcome!
Thanks a lot from germany
