OK, since we're doing this :-) I would also like the following:
1. the built-in pipermail archive stuff to handle MIME multipart better.
e.g. in the web pages, store non-text MIME parts in separate files,
preferably in a sub-directory. These files can then be excluded from
any indexing for a search facility.
2. a nicer web interface to the web archive e.g. a frames based approach
so that you can keep the index in one frame and display the messages in
another (makes navigating the archive easier)
3. a built-in search function for the web archive
For an example of what I'd like, see:
(hopefully I got the permissions correct - also, the neighbourhood stuff in
webglimpse doesn't work). To do this, I had to ditch the pipermail stuff and
use mhonarc, with a contributed mhonarc frames config. The webglimpse stuff
could be used with pipermail, but I don't like webglimpse's licencing model.
I think it is too restrictive for something that is relatively simple (and
could be implemented in pipermail fairly easily). Cheers!
