[Mailman-Users] Pluggable authentication for Mailman web interface?

Can you say more about what you are trying to achieve?

There is an authenticating reverse proxy server for the Mailman REST API at https://gitlab.com/astuart/mailmania

But I don’t think anyone has run it yet - it’s pretty raw, not much more than alpha but fully functional.

I’m sorry but I’ve been dragged to other priorities so there’s no real documentation but I’m happy to answer any questions if you want to give it a try.

This thread really should like on Mailman Developers <Mailman-Developers at python.org> though.

Are there any guidelines for adding authentication and /or authorization mechanisms to the Mailman web user interface?
Specifically, I was wondering if there is any kind of guidance for authenticating the user via an HTTP header (e.g. HTTP_REMOTE_USER) so that an authenticating reverse proxy could be placed in front of the Mailman web interface.

If there is no such built-in mechanism or pluggable mechanism, is there any kind of guidance on how the existing authentication mechanism might be replaced from a technical standpoint?
