Are there currently *any* web forum(s) that enable forum/mailman mirroring ? In other words a Mailman email going to a web forum and vica versa ?
I believe that something like this could work with phpbb2 but not the current release. Can anyone help please ?
Not yet, but I'd like there to be, because I think a web forum could be a more user-friendly (or at least user-familiar) way for us to handle archives. I started looking in to it some time ago, but life happened and the code I'd hoped to write didn't.
I HATE web forums but know people who like them. The advantage of a web forum <> email situation is IMO "participation".
Suppose 10 people who dislike forums are on an email list. Suppose 10 people who dislike email lists are on a forum.
With mirroring all 20 could be talking to each other. Each using his/her preferred posting method.
Lastly, some people prefer both. Eg. email from home and web forum posting from work.
