my name is Anna and I'm participating in GSoC for Systers where my project
this summer is to develop a new UI for Mailman 3.0 as well as a UI extension
for Systers who are running a customized version of Mailman. The UI will be
written as an app in Django. Together with my mentor Florian we've discussed
some general matters regarding the UI and the most recent concern adding a
database for it. We figured it might be good to use the core db only for the
"standard" UI with which we'll communicate through the rest-client and for
organizations wishing to customize the UI, such as Systers, we'll let them
add a UI db.
Other things we've discussed was the number of apps for the UI, if we should
use only one or if we should separate it into, for instance, one app for the
user UI's and one for the admin UI, or possibly split it up even more.
We've gathered all our thoughts on
http://wiki.list.org/display/DEV/Web+Interface+Status and now we'd like to
get some feedback from you people as well as to find out if you have other
opinions or ideas for us. I/we would really appreciate your help on this.
