I think the biggest thing I hear complaints about on my MM server, is
that there's no way to configure a monthly "rules" mailing without
requiring sysadmin (i.e. my) intervention with crude hacks with cronjobs
and such. I've got a few lists where such monthly mailings are not just
handy, they're downright required. :-/
Will there be anything forthcoming in Mailman that will let the mailing
list owners set stuff like that up without requiring sysadmin
intervention? Just wondering.. :)
