Oh, I didn't know that Mailman 2 archives are called "pipermail".

Well, there are already other archives already available if you want another UI:

http://dir.gmane.org/gmane.comp.python.devel -- using NNTP

And maybe others.


It's really hard to design an UI liked by everyone :-)

I prefer Mailman 3 UI (HyperKitty), I prefer to get all emails of a
thread on a single page, and the new UI has a few nice features like
"Most active discussions", "Activity Summary", "favorites", tags, etc.

Except of Antoine Pitrou, does everybody else like the new UI? :-)

I expect that Mailman 3 is more actively developed than Mailman 2. By
the way, I hope that Mailman 3 and HyperKity support and runs on
Python 3, whereas Mailman 2 is more likely stuck at Python 2, no? ;-)
