Have your GNU Mailman mailing lists updated to version 3? I'm curious if others have seen it more in the wild...

Please boost for reach.


@brion I've been looking at v3 since before it was released, their Hyperkitty webui showed great promise. At Xiph.org we really wanted something inclusive for the end-users who don't get mailing lists as a concept. Unfortunately it did not materialize.
@ePirat looked again recently and nope.
Also no good migration path AFAIU.

What seems to be an overlooked part of Mailman 3 is its REST api. I am actually developing a brand new admin U.I. called Affinity to replace Postorius. Empathy will be the forum/archive replacement for Hyperkitty. I want Empathy to be patterned heavily after Discourse. Affinity/Empathy will have great virtual domain support and a very strong mailing list core (Mailman 3) that Discourse seems to be lacking. BTW, I migrate MM2 lists to our MM3 service all the time.

This is a screen shot of the List Owner board (via Affinity) for a Mailman 3 list.

@brainwane @brion @ePirat Maybe I fail to see the whole thread there, but this just talks about migration.
We did figure that out at least for testing at Xiph.org.
It was what we saw after the migration that was underwhelming. Most problematic was that Hyperkitty did not deliver what was promised. The designs were completely different to what it was.
One speciific use case of ours: Offer "forum like interface, but with sensible threading view"
There was a G+ discussion too with some mailman ppl.

@tbr @brion yeah still no easy way to migrate and usability of Hyperkitty as not good, to put nicely.
