So far, I have been able to run the basic functionalities of archive-ui
for mm3. Moving forward, I would like to discuss these issues. Please
give your feedback.
*archive-ui* -> Yian's work on archive-ui as part of last year's GSOC on
*pipermail* -> Pipermail on mailman 3
1. In pipermail, all the static htmls generated for each message(that
goes into archives) are arranged in directories corresponding to
Whereas in archive-ui, all the conversations are stored in a single
directory. The reason is that since a conversation can span across
months, it is somewhat ambiguous where to keep that conversation.
If any of you think that arranging conversations by months offers
advantage in any form, then I can do so. But in that case, the whole
conversation will be kept in the month when its first message arrives.
2. Readable urls: URL corresponding to a conversation can be created
from subject of the first message of a conversation (in the same way as
various blog sites do).
Also, in archive-ui, when a message is archived, all the conversations
are generated again. Ideally, we should do minimum amount of work on
archiving a message. I am trying to work this out too.
