hi folks,

a couple of pointers and things we have found. we have been running the
nipy-user mailing list on google groups for a while and recently wanted to
extract the messages from it. while it's really easy to setup and run,
getting the messages out from google groups is a nightmare - one has to
resort to screen scraping techniques. there is no api.

the reason we wanted to get messages out is because we were transitioning
our Q&A to a platform called biostars and had a google summer of code
student this year to help extend various usability features including
deployment and ui.

here are the sites that use this framework:

the code itself is at: https://github.com/ialbert/biostar-central

we will continue to evolve this platform.
