Jitterbug uses this and it sucks. If I have 3 different Jitterbug
projects on the same host, every time I authenticate to one, I lose
the authentication to the other. This loss is persistent across
Now, maybe I don't have Jitterbug set up correctly, or maybe they have
bugs in their implementation, but I would hate it if Mailman worked
the same way.
I've been playing with SourceForge a lot lately and I like what
they do. You login with username/password over a secure link and once
logged in, your primary interaction is across that link. Seems
intuitive, secure, and convenient. This is the direction I think I'd
like to go in.
 In preparation for moving Mailman development over to SF!
