I was really thrilled to see both Máirín Duffy and Luis Villa talking about mailing lists this week.

Before I talk about their posts, though, I want to tell you two awesome things related to Mailman:

1. The Mailman logo contest is now closed and the steering committee (including me!) is deciding how to narrow down the field before we put it to a vote. Check out all the awesome entries here!

2. Systers has been accepted as a mentoring organization for Google Summer of Code. And I'm going to be part of their totally awesome team of mentors! They're hoping to get a whole lot of improvements for their mailing list, and a lot of these are the same sort of improvements we generally want for Mailman, so I'm really hoping we'll be able to use some of that code in Mailman 3. Check out our proposed list of projects: I'm most excited about the archives one, but there's lots of awesome in that list. (Student looking for a summer project? Apply!)

Okay, now that I've talked about my announcements, let's talk about those posts I mentioned, and how they're connected to my upcoming work with Mailman.

In which I talk about the awesomeness of dynamic sub-lists and improvements to the archives )

I'm really excited to see other people thinking about the problems of mailing lists... and I'm even more excited to say that thanks to Systers, Google and a team of SoC students, we may be seeing the mailing lists of The Future sooner rather than later!

Expect me to be talking about this stuff a lot over the coming months, and if you've got suggestions regarding Mailman, now's an even better time than usual to tell me about it. Don't be shy!
