I would like to get the design right first, after reading the full
thread a couple of times, some thoughts:
By bounce I meant SMTP-time rejection, sounds like the LMTP stuff
provides that (and mailman 2 doesn't use that IIRC).
Temporarily failing lists were not an objective.
The design of list objects seems to be heavily similar to how the UI
is in mailman 2, I think it should be much more generic.
In the web UI turning on emergency moderation should set the first
item in the receive pipeline to a hold() function.
Disabling a list would set the first item in the receive pipeline to
reject_disabled, set the first item in the subscription pipeline to
reject_disabled, set the first item in the settings pipeline to
List objects should be flexible to support different kinds of lists,
but the UI should hide most of that behind simple labels like "retired
list", "public list", "private list" and the "emergency moderation"
PS: Is there a Mailman UI yet? The link on the Mailman branches wiki
page points to one with only one commit in it and no working code.
PPS: It seems Mailman 3 will be quite different to Mailman 2 so I'm
thinking configuration filenames, data directories etc should be named
mailman3 instead of mailman.
