Mailman 3 is much more modular than Mailman 2.1 There is a core list
management engine that can run by itself, receive and distribute
messages and do other functions. User's can subscribe and unsubscribe by

The core engine can be configured and lists created, etc. via shell
commands and/or via a RESTful HTTP API which would normally only be
exposed on the local host and is not suitable for end user (subscriber,
list admin) use.

The GNU Mailman project also provides end user, web based tools for list
administration, user subscription, etc. (this is Postorius) and
archiving (this is HyperKitty). These are optional, but are part of the
entire suite of tools.

Currently, no packagers are providing Mailman 3 packages (Debian is
known to be working on it), but presumably, packages would include
Postorius and HyperKitty or alternatives.

One of our developers, Abhilash Raj, maintains Docker container images
for Mailman 3 which include Postorius and HyperKitty. See
