Hi, all.

Andrew Kuchling has been developing pipermail


a python-based tool for maintaining maillist web archives, similar to
hypermail.  He has, *quite* conveniently for the PSA, contrived to
test its operation using several of the PSA SIG mailing lists as test
subjects.  He's agreed to move this out of testing and into operation,
so the PSA will have a maintained pipermail archive of its sigs
mailing lists.

What we seeking now is some judicious input about the layout,
operational details, and general aesthetics.  Take a look at:


for a rudimentary view of the quarterly archive sections.  Currently,
the lists are divided into yearly quarters, with links to them all
collected, by quarter, in a single document.

I'll post my own, immediate suggestions, in a reply to this message.

Thanks, andrew, for putting this together!
