Greetings Mailmen -
Please can anyone advise me on the suitability of Mailman (and variants)
for the following use?
I am investigating approaches to manage a lightweight process to approve
documents for a shortlist. This process takes place several times a year
and has 20-30 interested parties and 1 administrator.
A mailing list, particularly managed via Mailman, appeals to me. I have
glanced briefly at the Vote-MM add-in.
Mailing lists are often used to review things for publication but I
would like to automate the tracking. features I want to implement include:
- announcement of start, end of voting periods
- announcement of new items for consideration
- collecting Yes and No votes (possibly More Info Please votes)
- announcing final result, including list of items approved
I believe I will have the wherewithal and skills needed to add this to
Hope you can advise me...
