I'm please to announce the 2.0 final release of Mailman, the GNU
Mailing List Manager.  Mailman is released under the GNU General
Public License (GPL).

Mailman is software to help manage electronic mail discussion lists,
much like Majordomo or Smartmail.  Mailman gives each mailing list a
unique web page and allows users to subscribe, unsubscribe, and change
their account options over the web.  Even the list manager can
administer his or her list entirely via the web.  Mailman has most of
the features that people want in a mailing list management system,
including built-in archiving, mail-to-news gateways, spam filters,
bounce detection, digest delivery, and so on.

Mailman is compatible with most web servers, web browsers, and mail
servers.  It should run on any Unix-like operating system.  Mailman
requires Python 1.5.2 or better.  To install Mailman from source, you
will need a C compiler.

For more information on Mailman, please see the following mirrors:


(the latter is not yet up to date)

There are email lists (managed by Mailman, of course!) for both
Mailman users and developers.  See the web sites above for details.

My thanks to everybody who has helped with this release, especially
those named in the ACKNOWLEDGMENTS file.  My thanks also to the
SourceForge crew for their open source project management site.
Couldn't have done it without them.
