I'm currently at UDS (Ubuntu Developer Summit) so I'm not able to look in
detail at the moment, but to say I'm psyched would be an understatement!
Really awesome work and kudos to everyone involved.

I'll play with the demos and provide more feedback when I get back, but in the
meantime let me follow up on this:

Do you want to integrate all of the archiver and search code into Mailman 3 or
just some integration code?  Despite the way Pipermail's always been bundled
with Mailman 2, I'm not sure that's the most productive way to structure the
project going forward.  In fact, I'd like to split Pipermail out of the
Mailman 3 bzr tree (and started to go down that path at one point) and MM3's
architecture allows for much easier integration with external archivers (even
multiple ones at the same time).  So it might make sense to structure the
Syster's archiver work as a separate project too.

Please do submit merge proposals against the Mailman 3 trunk for the changes.
If you're (meaning Terri, Yian, and Priya specifically, but also applying to
anyone in general) unsure about how to go about that, guidelines for
reviewable branches, or any other related issue, please don't hesitate to ping
me on #mailman next week and I can help walk you through it.  I'm UTC-4 and
generally online during working hours.

We'll also need to get copyright assignments to the FSF.  Email me off-line to
get that process started, or if there are any problems doing so.
