Mailman uses "pipermail" by default, which is just a rendition of
hypermail, Kevin Hughes' ancient and abandoned archiver. Hypermail has
been revived, however, and there is now a 2.0 version out and about,
so all the folks with pipermail and Mhonarch archives are switching
back to hypermail, as near as I can tell from the discussions I've
had with other Mailman users.

Mailman, FWIW, is great - if you like/know Python. If not, then it's
not. I use both Mailman and Majordomo, and like that I can hack the
Perl source for Majordomo and find it frustrating (but not frustrating
enough to learn Python) that I can't with Mailman. And the 2.0 beta
has garnered a lot of complaints - I wouldn't call it ready for
production usage just yet.

At any rate, worth checking out the new Hypermail:


They've done all of the stuff I had hacked into my copy of hypermail
1.03, and then some.
