Re: Help the SATURN list into the future!

I've got a Mailman installation; it's the mailing list software I'm most = familiar with (except maybe majordomo, but majordomo hasn't been updated = in forever so I don't use it anymore.) Mailman handles subscription, = digest mode, vacation mode, archives and a variety of other options.

I'm also looking into integration with a Drupal-based front end, but = that's an option I don't know is feasible.

For a community like this, I prefer keeping the administration and = hosting in the family, so to speak. I don't have anything against Google = or Yahoo Groups, but I like the autonomy of keeping it on our own = server. I'm another subscriber to the list and I have the resources to = host the list at no additional cost. I like the idea of the list living = under the hospitality of a subscriber rather than that of a corporation.

I know that I can migrate the archives to Mailman. I don't know how to = do that with Google or Yahoo. If it's the will of the list to go to a = Google or Yahoo group, I'm fine with that too but I won't be of much = help making it happen. This is something I can do so I'm taking the = action I can until I hear someone say I shouldn't.
