Hi, I'm one of the GSOC mentors for Systers, all of whose students are
working on Mailman enhancements. Some of these (Like Malveeka's) would
be suitable for merging upstream, but the review and acceptance
process is not clear.

* Do people on this list regularly provide review of proposed
enhancement patches?
* Is there a set of people who explicitly ACK or NAK all proposed patches?
* Once reviewed, merging is via LP merge requests, right? Or does one
do the merge request and *then* get reviewed?
* More fundamentally, is Mailman currently accepting patches from
external contributors?

We have code to contribute. It's not perfect yet but we will make it
better. We need some Official Mailman participation or our
improvements will never make it out of our branch. Even a response of
"we're not interested in X, thanks" would be much superior to no
response at all.

Thanks -- Regards -- Andy
