-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
After far too long, I'm finally happy to announce the availability of
GNU Mailman version 3.0 alpha 1, code name "Leave That Thing Alone".
Hopefully, I needn't point out that this version is not suitable for
production. Instead, I'm making it available to provide an early
snapshot of where Mailman 3 is going, and to give interested
developers, users and integrators something real to play with. I am
looking forward to your feedback and contributions, and I hope you
will at least download the package and give what works a try.
For now, I would prefer if all discussion about 3.0a1 were held on the
mailman-developers mailing list. Please don't submit bug reports to
SourceForge; it's far too early for that. Ideally, you'll be
interested enough to create your own branches and push them to
Launchpad for all of us to look at.
For detailed information on 3.0a1, please read docs/ALPHA.txt. This
will explain what works and what doesn't, how to run the test suite
and how to actually create, populate, and deliver to some mailing
lists. Much does not yet work, but everything that does work is very
well documented using Python's doctest framework.
Please note that Python 2.5 is required, but a C compiler is no longer
needed. You will need some third party packages, but everything you
need is available in the Python Cheeseshop.
You can download both the tarball and egg file for 3.0a1 from the
Cheeseshop as well:
You'll probably want the source tarball.
I hope you will find this first snapshot useful and encouraging.
