Here are some Moderate features I think would be really usefull in mailman:
1. an option to resend / forward a message held for approval to a certain
why? sometimes you don't want to accept a post on the mailinglist, but
you want to be able to show it to others (fellow moderators for example)
2. filter html... s/</</g (forgive me, i'm a perl programmer :) )
mess up the pending message page. Which makes me wonder if it's any kind
run on *your* site.
3. only show attachment filenames / types instead of the MIME base64...
why? if somebody sends a 1mb attachment to the list, it takes quite a while
to view the pending page... and small attachments just mess it up...
oh and plain-text digests aren't getting any better with attachments :(
4. the TODO says : "allow the admin to edit posts in the database (put a header
in the post noting that it was edited by a moderator, however!) "
what would be a better alternative IMHO is to allow the admin to add
a comment on top of the message to be send to the list... the adimdb page
could have a "add comment" textarea with every post held for approval...
accepting a post with a non-empty comment could then add it to the post
before it is send out to the list...
