[Mailman-Users] Advantages - Files

Instead of rolling your own, you might consider throwing up a Drupal site.
Drupal is free, and it has a module called Mailman Manager that integrates
Mailman with Drupal.  The site can be your files repository.  As a bonus,
your list members can manage their subscriptions through the Drupal site as
long as their Drupal account has the same email address as their mailing
list subscription.  As a further bonus, you can assign your list members a
role and then lock down the permissions, allowing them and only them to
upload and download files.

I am toying with implementing this on a longtime mailing list I run, but I
haven't figured out how to get the 350 list members to go on the companion
site and create Drupal logins.  For a fairly new list, you might have an
easier time.
