Hi folks - I figured you might want to know about this small Mastodon conversation.
Thanks for letting us know, Sumana! I am not on Mastodon, so probably won't be able to reply there.
Seems like the world of folks who are currently using Mailman 2 lists includes people who need:
- materials to help their sysadmins understand how and why to upgrade
We do have migration docs for system admins: https://docs.mailman3.org/en/latest/migration.html
Although, the current migration involves running a command for all the lists one-by-one and then import the Archives separately. The process could be made a bit better IMO, but I haven't had time to prioritize the effort recently. Maybe I should pick up my WIP MR again1.
- major hosting companies like Dreamhost to start offering Mailman 3,
and an easy upgrade path
I am happy to help any hosting companies to migrate their Mailman 2 users off to Mailman 3. I haven't had any previous conversations, but was wondering if there are any representatives on this list to start off a conversation perhaps?
The process can be fairly easily automated I think.
Thanks! I replied to the thread and some conversation is continuing there. -Sumana
One response in that thread:
to close the loop on the dreamhost bit, i got a response to the
effect that postorious doesn't expose enough settings via web UI, so until the web configuration experience is workable for them dreamhost won't be planning a migration.
All the useful ones are now exposed, pending one (emergency flag for MailingLists), which is also exposed in master branch but not released yet.
Unless they mean other "settings" of some sort, then they'd need to be a bit more specific since everything is a setting ;-).
