    I think it would be pretty cool actually, we can have archives and an online reader too. A lot of opensource stuff uses mailing lists as Chris points out, and I think sourceforge has it too.

  2. Marek Kubica

    Yeah, mailinglists would be cool. At best linked with a nice HTML archives like the ones that Lurker creates. Or something like GMane, which I even prefer.

    I had been hoping for something like this. Not having to dig around to find an external host for mailing lists for my projects seems like a good idea in general. mailman is very well-known as mailing-list-manager and used by the vast majority of mailing lists these days. If you insist on something written in python, I'd suggest to go with it. Being able to download the archive in mbox format would also be nice.

    Yes, please. I just created a list on but I would have preferred to host it here right next to the source code — just imagine nice things like the archive linking back to commits when it recognized a changeset hash...

    Some kind of discussion feature would be very much appreciated. I would even be willing to use the current issue tracker as a pseudo-forum, if I were only able to add my categories, etc. to support it.

    Agree with the mailing lists are old school comments. A nice discussion forum with an email gateway - something like google groups - should keep everyone happy.
