It has been some time since the last update about HyperKitty. I have deployed the latest code at mm3test.fedoraproject.org for everyone to take a look. Please file any bugs/missing features here
HyperKitty offer features like upvoting/downvoting of messages, adding tags (to be implemented soon!) to threads, user profiles and other user specific features. We require users to be logged in before using any of these features. So, the first task for my GSoC project was to implement login procedure for hyperkitty. It uses django-social-auth application  to implement login functionality. Currently, there are four ways of logging into hyperkitty test server namely, Google openid, yahoo openid, browserid, and registering the user on the site itself. I have not enabled other ways of logging in (e.g, twitter) but it should be fairly easy to enable those.
I have written a blog post about the essential features an archiver should posses in my opinion. The second most important thing for me is the ability to promote good content posted on the list. An archiver should be intelligent enough to suppress the "spamy" content and bring good content on the surface. For this we have implemented a feature in which a user can upvote/downvote a message. The users accessing a particular thread will be able to sort the messages based on votes of other users.
I have also implemented the basic user profiles in which you can see your personal info and the messages you rated. You will be able to edit the user profiles soon.
I have also started to write unit tests .
