I manage approx 50 discussion lists using the mailman system. The nature of our organization is that one member is more than likely subscribed to more than just 1 list. One issue that has come up among the membership is the desire to authenticate only once and then be permitted to access the private archives for all lists that they are subscribed to without logging in again.
I've noticed that using administrative credentials created a cookie named 'site' whereas a normal login creates a cookie identifying the users email address and the individual list.
Has anyone worked on changing this functionality, or is it planned for Mailman 3? I've scoured list archives and the internet in general and haven't found even a hint that anyone is working on this or even feels like it's worth complaining about.
Did you look at http://wiki.list.org/x/vgAM? The very first paragraph says in part "Many things that people have been wanting for years will be addressed, most notably a unified user database ...".
The unified user database will address this and several other issues involving user email addresses, roles, authentication, etc.

I hadn't seen that no. Thanks for pointing it out. Until Mailman 3 is released, I'm going to look at the approach Adam is using. Thanks Adam.
