[Python-ideas] Upgrading python-ideas to MM3?

Besides the login issues (or non-issues), assuming best case scenario, would the migration be seamless from my inbox’s point of view?  Would I have to re-subscribe?

Subject: [Python-ideas] Upgrading python-ideas to MM3?


Hi folks,

A number of smaller python.org <http://python.org>  mailing lists have been successfully migrated to the PSF's Mailman 3 infrastructure, for example, the core-workflow mailing list: https://mail.python.org/mm3/archives/list/core-workflow@python.org/

The biggest practical gain from the upgrade is to allow folks that prefer a more forum-like experience to use the native web gateway rather than subscribing to the list. (Although it does come with some general account management improvements as well, since you get one user account with multiple list subscriptions, rather than multiple independent subscriptions that happen to share an email address).


So far we've refrained from upgrading any of the "big" lists with lots of subscribers, but it seems to me that python-ideas could be a good test case on that front:

* anything we discuss here necessarily isn't urgent, so if the migration encounters unexpected problems, it's OK if list activity is disrupted for a while

* for newcomers to the core development process, python-ideas is typically going to be more relevant to them than the other big lists



P.S. As per https://github.com/python/core-workflow/issues/200#issuecomment-361818530, subscription migrations are based on email addresses, so the key point affecting individual users and list moderators is that you'll need to either go to https://mail.python.org/mm3/accounts/login/ and log in using a 3rd party service that already has your subscription email associated with it, or else go to https://mail.python.org/mm3/accounts/signup/ and create a new account directly with the appropriate email address.
