Hello Mailman Developers, Sorry in advance if this is not the right place for my query. I wanted to start contributing to Mailman-Development, and wanted a little head start for that. I would love to get any sort of guidance in this respect. I am a second year IT student with knowledge of c, c++, and trying my hands on web development.
Welcome! This is the right place to ask.
You probably will not find C and C++ very helpful in learning web development ... especially not Python. You should start with the Python tutorial (my own preference for my students is the Python 3 tutorial at
but you might want to start with Python 2 at
for web development, since many libraries are only partly ported to Python 3 at this point).
Then you should install the Bazaar VCS for your platform
do "bzr help launchpad" to learn how to set up your ids for Launchpad, where Mailman's code repository is hosted, and get the most recent code for Mailman 3 from
Then come back here, browse the mailman-developers archives, and ask questions!
