Hello! After much absence I am something on the order of back.

I have just landed a contract that will allow me to 'continue' my work 
on the mailman web ui, and my semester is ending, so I will actually 
have some time.

Having struggled mightily to find a way to improve templating while not 
moving to python 2.4 (at least), I have to confess I don't think there's 
a good way to get there.

I tried a couple of "scorched earth" approaches and I think that was 
part of why I didn't get something that worked.

Right now, I think the "low hanging fruit" is to rip out all the HTML 
'style' markup and make all the style applied via stylesheets.

I would dearly love to have anyone to work with on this project.

... oh yeah, and I will submit my paperwork to the FSF June 1st, which I 
know is "hella late".
