Having said all that, one thing that might work is for the Mailman Core to provide the ability to retrieve key/value pairs that can be attached to any given resource. This is sufficiently simple to mean it would present no problems for forward compatibility.
key/value pairs would suffice for some applications but as soon as you tried to build any serious third party Mailman application you’d fairly rapidly move beyond the capabilities of a key/value store. So there is something to be said for a very simple Mailman Core key/value store mechanism that would meet some simple needs. The argument against this is “well you’re going to outgrow it pretty quick anyway so why not immediately start with a more full featured data store”. as _______________________________________________ Mailman-Developers mailing list Mailman-Developers@python.org https://mail.python.org/mailman/listinfo/mailman-developers Mailman FAQ: http://wiki.list.org/x/AgA3 Searchable Archives: http://www.mail-archive.com/mailman-developers%40python.org/ Unsubscribe: https://mail.python.org/mailman/options/mailman-developers/archive%40jab.org Security Policy: http://wiki.list.org/x/QIA9
