[Mailman-Developers] RFC2369 - Mailing list management stuff
Wed, 23 Aug 2000 17:10:31 +0100
Anyone considered RFC2369 (with the catchy title of "The Use of URLs as
Meta-Syntax for Core Mail List Commands and their Transport through
Message Header Fields") and whether Mailman should support it.
In brief this is a batch of headers for list mail which define URLs to
do list management. Theoretically an MUA should use these to give a
user an interface to hack a list - ie sub/unsub get info on archives
Currently this is probably in a chicken and egg situation - MLMs don't
support it so MUAs don't either... Exmh does support it (first place
I'd seen mention of it).
It doesn't seem like that great a system to me :-)
