Re: [Mailman-Users] Mailman 3 setup

2012-05-04 Thread Terri Oda
As Mark has already said, the REST interface running on 
http://localhost:8001/3.0/ is an internal communications mechanism for 
different components of Mailman.  What you almost certainly wanted is 
the current web interface, Postorius, which needs to be installed as 
well.  It's still in alpha, but should give you some ability to poke around.


Florian's got a nice  5 minute guide to get the Mailman web UI running 
which can be found here: http://wiki.list.org/x/PwDL  I recommend you 
take a look at that!

I didnt change anything in mailman.cfg.

When I am trying to  open http://localhost:8001/3.0/ I am getting error

The REST API requires authentication


I am not getting any docs on it so that I could resolve. Can any one

[Mailman-Users] Archives! Two neat demos from my GSoC students

2010-10-26 Thread Terri Oda
As some of you may know, Mailman had a bunch of Google Summer of Code 
students working on our codebase via Systers, which hired students to do 
improvements on their Mailman-based list infrastructure.


I was mentoring for the project which worked on the archives, where we 
had two students, Yian Shang who worked on the web interface for the 
archives, and Priya Iyer who worked on integrating search.  They've 
produced some great demos that you all need to see, and some code that 
I'd really like to see integrated into Mailman 3.


I was going to forward their final summaries to the lists, but since 
they're quite long, here's the things I'd like you all to check out 
first and foremost.  There's two neat demos here!


#1:

Yian's been working on a variety of UI infrastructure improvements (note 
that in this case, she's working at the code to support the UI, not the 
graphics and theming, so this may not *look* fancy but it *behaves* 
really well)


Her threaded conversation demo is here:
http://dev.systers.org/pipermail/testing/all/conversation-3.html

and note that you can actually click through and read messages there, so 
try poking around those archives and see how you like them!


And you might be interested in hearing about the use cases that went 
into threading and quote detection that made that demo possible.  Many 
of you may have answered the surveys I sent out on her behalf which were 
used to generate these use cases!  She's got a whole series of posts on 
it, but here's one of interest:

http://movicont.nfshost.com/blog/mailman-archives-ui-added-automatically-detecting-quotes-support

#2:

Priya's search demo is here:
http://lists.priyakuber.in/cgi-bin/mailman/mailocate/search.py

She'd originally hoped to find and integrate an existing search package, 
but licensing proved to be an issue for upstream contribution, so she 
wound up implementing her own.  You can search a string, a phrase, 
wildcard searches with *, by author, by subject, and using some basic 
operators (AND OR NOT all work).  It's got a basic spell check, though 
she expects that will need to be improved.


The documentation is here: 
http://systers.org/systers-dev/doku.php/doumentation-priya
And the code is here: 
http://github.com/beachbrake/Mailocate/tree/master/demo/


-

I've cc'ed mailman-users on this email since many people there contributed to 
the surveys we used to develop use-cases, but follow-ups should probably go to 
mailman-developers!

Re: [Mailman-Users] Mailman, Postfix and Google Apps

2010-06-28 Thread Terri Oda

Is u...@example.com actually a gmail address?  You may want to read this:

http://wiki.list.org/x/2IA9

In short: if u...@gmail.com sends a message to the list, then 
u...@gmail.com won't get a copy.  It's a gmail feature that 
complicates things when debugging using gmail addresses.

I am stuck trying to help a friend configure their setup.

Their main domain has email handled by gmail so the mx for
example.compoints to the google mail servers.

They have a dedicated server that has postfix configured to handle mail for
mailinglists.example.com.

Mailman is set to use mailinglists.example.com

The problem I am having is mail from mailman is not making it to
u...@example.com.

Is this a mailman issue or a postfix issue?

[Mailman-Users] How do you use mailman mailing list archives?

2010-05-28 Thread Terri Oda

Hi all!

We've got 3 students working on improved archives for Mailman as part of 
 Google Summer of Code this year, and before they start writing code 
we'd like to gather some data on how people really use the archives.  If 
you have a minute, it'd help us a whole lot if you could fill out this 
survey to tell us how you use the existing archives and how you'd like 
to use them:


http://spreadsheets.google.com/viewform?formkey=dF9XcGRsYUpsOUtxYjBWRUdnVXN4X1E6MQ

I know I'm always inundated with survey requests, but I promise this one 
will help us create Archives Of The Future. ;)  Seriously, this should 
lead to more usable and useful Mailman archives, and who doesn't want 
that?  Feel free to pass it around to anyone else who might want to 
help, and if you have any questions or concerns please contact me.

As others have said, I'm not sure this is a good idea, unless your goal 
is to annoy your users and impede communication.  But one thing that 
would have the side-effect of blocking a reply-to-all is changing the 
list settings so that the list only accepts mails if there is exactly 
one recipient.


You can do this under Privacy Options - Recipient Filters
Set Ceiling on acceptable number of recipients for a posting. to 1

Then anyone hitting reply-to-all will get a message saying that their 
message is held because there are too many recipients, since any 
reply-to-all will include both the sender address and the list address.

There's a withlist script in $mailman/bin called fixurl.py -- you'll 
need to run it on lists to give them the appropriate new URLs.  Assuming 
the new system is already set up with the new style of URL as the default,


bin/withlist -l -r fix_url LISTNAME

There are quite a variety of tutorials, all of which are rather out of

Here's one for linux: http://www.linuxcommand.org/

(I haven't used either of those, since I learned the command line

If those don't suit, many local libraries and colleges can introduce you

Where is the best place for me to start understanding terminal commands like



you list there. I am honestly not even sure where to start. I am only used



to the web based interface.






The FAQ at http://wiki.list.org/x/z4A9 lists the commands and what

they do.



Each command has a --help option that gives the usage and options for

the command.



The two most useful commands for manipulating non GUI things or things

for all lists at once are bin/withlist and bin/config_list. Withlist

can run Python scripts against one or all lists and can invoke an

interactive Python interpreter with a list instance that can be

examined and changed interactively, but this requires both Python

knowledge and some knowledge of Mailman internals.



bin/config_list is more friendly. For example, in this case you would

just create a file containing the single line



admin_member_chunksize = 100



or whatever number you need, and run



  bin/config_list --inputfile /path/to/above/file listname

Re: [Mailman-Users] Problem with inappropriate breaks in messages

2010-04-20 Thread Terri Oda
There's a program in bin called cleanarch that can be run on your 
archive to fix this problem.  It cleans up the offending From lines from 
older mbox files so that you can run arch again and generate correct 
html versions of the archives.

Chris Malme wrote:

Further to my earlier post.


Note that this is not just the archive - this actually affects messages
being sent to the subscribers - i.e. a message containing a newline followed
by From  will be split in two before going out.


Further testing shows that this is incorrect. The problem affects only the
archive, not the mail-list messages going to the subscribers.

However, the archive problem is repeatable. Any instance in the message text
of From  following a single newline is interpreted as a new message.

Re: [Mailman-Users] Mailman Archives page not updating

2010-03-14 Thread Terri Oda
You're using the wrong arch; there's an arch command that tells you your 
machine's architecture (i.e. i686).


What you'll want to do is go into /usr/lib/mailman/bin and execute

./arch

and similarly for cleanarch

./cleanarch

from there to make sure that you're executing the right thing.  Or you 
can use the whole path (/usr/lib/mailman/bin/arch) to ensure that you're 
running the command you want to be running.


(This is happening because your machine (sensibly) doesn't look for 
executables in the current path.  I'm sure there's a nice tutorial as to 
why and how to work like this if you're curious.)

OK, thanks. Thinking about this some more, it does seem like an

Also, you should note that in some places anti-spam laws make it illegal

The short answer is no, you do not want to ask for an upgrade yet.

An alpha release is an early one, prior to the product being ready for 
all users.  Wikipedia has a reasonable page explaining how software 
releases are often named:

I totally understand if you don't have time to learn all this stuff, but 
if you're willing to learn, you can install virtualbox

I usually recommend Ubuntu for a quick and easy install), and install 
Mailman.  It's a bit time consuming, but it's not actually as hard as 
instructions make it sound, generally speaking.


There may be some instructions or links to the vms we were using here 
(or elsewhere in the systers wiki):

With all your testing experience, it'd be totally awesome if you could

manage to get it running, you're still testing the instructions and 
that's still totally useful. :)

Re: [Mailman-Users] unsubscribing addresses from domain in one fellswoop?

2010-01-06 Thread Terri Oda
In case anyone is wondering what Marie-Yvette is asking, her message 
says that she's trying to make her mailing list archives more useful to 
her, and has noticed that approved messages are archived but rejected 
ones disappear.  She's noticed that there is an option to save rejected 
messages to a file, but that option is not available unless activated by 
the administrator.  So she's asking for that option to be activated.


(Which obviously, we can't do, and I'm not sure who to tell her to 
contact.)

Oui, les messages rejectés ne vais pas etre au archive -- c'est normal. 
 Si tu veut un record personel, vous pouvez t'envoyé un copie 
manuellement avec l'interface web chaque fois que vous rejet une 
message, ou vous pouvez utilizé l'option pour préserver au disque.


Malheureusement, nous ne peuvons pas t'aider avec activer cet option: 
Vous avez contacté la liste mailman-users, une liste pour les personnes

I don't think this is a mailman question. I think you are asking how to
change your name in your mail client (Evolution 2.22.3.1). There is
some options or preferences setting to do this.


Well, it *could* be a mailman question.  You can change your real name 
in your list options page (e.g. 
http://mail.python.org/mailman/options/mailman-users for this list). 
Changing your name in mailman will change which name administrators see 
when they look at your subscription, and the name you see when you log 
in to edit your mailman options.


However, this has no impact on what name will show up in the mails you 
send to the list or elsewhere. As Mark said, you'll need to change that 
in your mail client.

Actually, the best you can do is Recipient filters. If you set
require_explicit_destination to Yes and max_num_recipients to 2, any
post which is not explicitly addressed to and only to the list will be
held.


This also has the side effect of training (or annoying) your users who 
don't have reply to list buttons in their mail clients.  Which may be 
a reasonable side effect, or a really annoying one, depending on your 
list members.  When we did something similar for related reasons, the 
cries of joy and the cries of anguish pretty much cancelled each other 
out, but your mileage may vary.

There is a small amount of compiled C code.

You have to install the developer tools. This package is usually under
optional installs on the OS install disk.


If it's not immediately obvious what you need to install, I recommend 
you just install xcode and that should take care of installing all the 
necessary bits.


I have in the past had Mailman running on Mac OS as a personal test

Re: [Mailman-Users] Regenerating pipermail archives

2009-10-27 Thread Terri Oda

Here's the howto:

 http://wiki.list.org/x/OAB0

But the short version is you want to edit listname.mbox/listname.mbox 
and then run bin/arch to regenerate the archives.  Make sure to shut 
down mailman for the few minutes while you do this if you don't want to 
risk missing messages.


Lindsay Haisley wrote:

When editing a Mailman pipermail archive to expunge one or more posts
prior to using the arch utility to regenerate all the archive files,
what's the master file that one needs to edit?  - the listname.mbox
file, the listname.txt file or the listname.txt.gz file?

Is there a HOWTO somewhere on editing pipermail archives?

I'm guessing it should be in site admin tasks:

Have you tried running bin/cleanarch and then rerunning bin/arch to

caused by messed up From lines in your old mbox file (used by the 
archiver to determine the start of messages).  Mutt may just have a more

Be warned, though, if you regenerate the entire archive, then the links

Are the messages being sent in HTML?  I never seem to have this trouble

The best way to fix it is to not send HTML messages, but it may be

Unfortunately, that error message doesn't contain enough information for 
us to help you.  As it says, you'll need to find this information in the 
mailman logs (specifically, the error log, which is probably stored in 
something like ~mailman/logs/error or /var/log/mailman/error, but the 
exact path will depend on your installation).


It would also help if you could explain exactly what you mean by trying

Was it the listinfo page or one of the admin pages or something else?

I suppose it has to be done via /bin/withlist and a script, or is

Assuming the admindb web interface is working, you could go there and
approve the posts.


And if you want a script to work with that, here's one I wrote for 
greasemonkey (a firefox add-on that lets you script parts of your 
interface).  You'll have to alter the @include line so it contains your 
own site address.  This would probably work better as a bookmarklet, if 
someone wants to convert it.


You'll still have to click submit yourself (which gives you a chance

Here's a bookmarklet version of the script I posted earlier.  Just 
bookmark this stupidly long string and then when you're viewing your 
admin page, click the bookmark to move every box over to Accept -- 
should simplify the task some.




javascript:function%20approveAll(){var%20inputs=document.getElementsByTagName(input);for(var%20i=0;iinputs.length;i++){if(inputs[i].type=='radio'inputs[i].name.indexOf(senderaction-)==0inputs[i].value==1){inputs[i].checked=true;}}};approveAll()


I expect the stupidly long string is going to get line-wrapped, so 
you'll probably need to stick it back together.  I've only tested it in 
Firefox 3, but it's pretty basic JavaScript so it will likely work in 
other browsers.

Re: [Mailman-Users] Disabling quoting of original messages sent to request

2009-06-11 Thread Terri Oda

Steven Bonisteel wrote:

Spammer sends message to a Mailman list's 'request' address using his real 
target's e-mail address in 'From:'

Mailman  responds with:

The results of your email command are provided below. Attached is your original

... and then faithfully reproduces the spammer's original payload and sends to 
the target.

How can I disable the quoting of the original messages in responses from the 
'request' address?


Are you sure you want to just disable the quoting?  I know the spams are 
obnoxious, but at least right now your users can tell that the spammer 
is the culprit.  If you take that part out, then they may assume your 
installation of mailman is at fault, or that they somehow sent something 
out, which could be even more confusing than just receiving the spam 
copy is.


That said, if you want more info on controlling this sort of thing, you 
might want to do a search for mailman and backscatter -- there was 
some discussion on this a while back that might have useful suggestions 
for your particular problem.

It is only possible by modifying the code in the mass_subscribe() and
mass_remove() definitions in Mailman/Cgi/admin.py. Without
modification, the user notification for Mass Removal always defaults
to No and the owner notifications for Mass Subscription and Mass
Removal default to the same setting.


If you're just looking for a personal fix, it would be fairly easy to 
make a bookmarklet or greasemonkey script which set these defaults in 
your browser.

My view is that if people are posting to the list, they should
subscribe to the list.


There are cases where posters have no need or desire to subscribe to the 
list.  For example, I moderate a job posting list where we screen 
postings for our members.  Most people posting jobs aren't seeking them! 
 It'd be a bit silly to expect hr/recruiting folk to subscribe.


In our case, I believe they can just check when their post went through 
because the archives are public, but I'm sure they'd prefer the email 
rather than having to check back a day later!

Why do you want this?  If you need an audit trail so that you know who
approved each request, or you'd like moderators to get email
notification so they don't visit the moderation page only to find it
was updated 20 seconds ago, as Mark says, Mailman provides no such
feature.


We do this so that when each moderator checks her email, she can tell at 
a glance if the pending requests for the day have already been handled 
(well, assuming she's got all those types of emails filtered into one 
folder).  It's actually fairly handy if you're not talking a list where 
there's lots of admins: a quick mail saves another 5 people the trouble 
of checking.


We just do it by asking list admins on the many-admin lists to reply to 
the X listname moderator request(s) waiting mails but change the 
-bounces address to -owner.  It's slightly annoying, but not that hard. 
 That might work for the original poster's problem too?

A few months back our mailman listserv started showing up with an occasional

This is related to the MIME type of the message being sent, common when 
messages are sent as HTML.  Check out section 4.39 of the FAQ:


http://wiki.list.org/x/84A9

Cutting and pasting, it sounds like your options are:

 1. Configure Mailman to remove the msg_header/msg_footer
 2. Configure Mailman to strip all HTML and MIME formatting and send 
out all messages as text-only (text/plain)
 3. Get everyone to change the MUA they use to one that is more 
HTML/MIME-aware

 4. Live with the problem

I use #2, personally, although it sometimes causes formatting weirdness.

I really don't want anyone over-riding my own choices for link colors.


The original version I had used the standard link colours (ie - it

something we can resolve.


Seems like a good fit for the Participate page!  I've put it just

Also, if I can convince launchpad and my laptop to get along, I'll

It's not adding an extra one.  There really should be a directory

I know, it seems silly, but that's the way it is, so if you change  
your files to match that structure it should work just fine!  (Well,  
assuming you have the permissions correct and so on...)

Re: [Mailman-Users] multiple domains

2008-07-03 Thread Terri Oda
If you just want to change the default for new lists, you'll want to  
change mm_cfg.py so that DEFAULTURLHOST and DEFAULTEMAILHOST use the  
new domain.  This will only have an effect on new lists.


When converting old lists, you'll need to change the values of those  
variables for each list you want to change.  The archives will be  
untouched by this action.

It all depends on your setup.  On my mac, pdfs are created directly

not the default), and goodness knows what it might be like on windows.


Someone on this list that knows LaTeX extremely well, might be able  
to figure
what needs to change in the TEX file so those level headings aren't

I might be able to figure this out.  It may not be the TeX -- we  
might have to change the options in the makefile or something.  I'll  
try to take a look at it next week if nothing else comes up.


To be honest, though, my solution to this sort of problem with other  
Mailman documentation in the past has been to import everything into  
our wiki so conversion is done there and with consistent software.


I still not convinced it's the best possible solution, but it has  
greatly limited the number of queries I get on the subject.

It is not obvious from the list information page how one would

Agreed!  And thanks for mentioning it -- the more user input we get,  
the better!  It's a bit hard to make everything obvious on that first

existing members (right now the page is clearly optimized for new  
subscribers).  Would it make more sense to have just a giant  
existing list members click here and a separate page that's  
targetted at existing members, or do you think we can do both things  
in one place? Saving that click can be a big deal...


Hmmm... now you've got me thinking about it again.  Perhaps some good

Re: [Mailman-Users] Muti-Mailman install

I have searched all over for how to do true virtual list with  
mailman and finely decided to run multiple mailman installs side by

This doesn't answer your questions, but have you considered giving  
the lists unique names, but doing aliasing so that they look right to  
the users?


For example, if you want to have [EMAIL PROTECTED] and  
[EMAIL PROTECTED],


Mailman could believe that these are

[EMAIL PROTECTED]
[EMAIL PROTECTED]

(distinct names)

But then you can set up [EMAIL PROTECTED] to point to  
[EMAIL PROTECTED] and ditto for example2.  You users  
use the shorter names to post to the lists, alter other settings like  
the prefix tag to match, and in theory everyone's happy. :)


The reason I mention this:
You may have some reason for wanting true virtual domains and have  
already discarded this idea, but I've found some clever aliasing is a  
good enough solution for a lot of people, and it's a lot easier than  
running multiple installations or using patches.


Also, there's an FAQ entry on this but (in my opinion) it seems like  
it could use an update:


http://wiki.list.org/x/jIA9

If you found other resources that you found useful, please add them  
to that wiki page!

[...] the more user input we get, the better!


Another thread said that “the web UI is scheduled for overhaul”.

Is anyone assigned to this? Is it an open process? Can we follow it  
somewhere?


The last major push was last summer, as part of a Summer of Code  
project: http://wiki.list.org/x/2Q  I think Ethan's still doing some  
work here, but I don't know what his status is.


I believe there was also some work done on basic CSS conversion that  
was more recent.


I've opened up a new page on the wiki to get more of a process going:

http://wiki.list.org/display/DEV/Web+Interface


1. Too many options.



Agreed.  My solution would be to have an expert and a simple  
interface.  Three reasons:


1. Even *as* an expert, I'd love to have a small interface that met  
my most common needs.
2. Choosing what options to keep and which to toss would likely slow  
down the process so much that we'd never get a new interface.
3. Giving people access to files is more of a pain than letting them  
interact through a web UI.  (eg - don't have to worry about shell  
access, bad file syntax, etc.)



  2. Weak categorization.


Agreed.  Often the option people want is there, but not where they  
look.  And even writing the documentation, I've found myself hard- 
pressed to explain some things.


  3. Typographically bad, e.g. no visual cues about significance,  
related options, etc. and right-aligned labels make it difficult to  
skim down through a page.


Agreed that there's some visual stuff that needs work.  Mostly, I  
find it just looks old and clunky and too busy.


  4. Labels are too verbose, contributing with noise to the overall  
view, and the “Details for «the_mailman_option_name»” under each  
label does not help in this regard.


I've got mixed feelings about this.  The labels do contribute to  
noise, but they also provide the ability for me to tell people  
change the setting with name $foo *or* describe the description if  
I'm not near a computer to check the stuff myself.  The longer labels  
also make it easier for people looking at the interface the first  
time to figure out what things do at a glance instead of having to  
click each details button to find the one they want.



The web interface for 3.0 is going to be *very* different from the  
2.1 stuff because a lot of things are just going to go away or  
appear.  But I think we'd do well to think seriously about making 2.2  
have an improved interface.   Honestly, I feel that the web UI which  
used to be Mailman's strength has lately become its biggest weakness.


I've been putting my thought into organizing the documentation lately  
(as anyone who's been following the wiki has no doubt noted), but I'm  
almost done what I wanted to do there, and I want to be writing code  
next.  I'd been planning on tackling the archiver, but perhaps I  
should take a harder look at web UI for my next project.

On a related note, if those really long FAQ urls from the Mailman

[Mailman-Users] Mailman FAQ: a call for help

2008-05-27 Thread Terri Oda
Ever wanted to help out with Mailman but didn't know how?   Here's  
your chance!


I've been trying to make the wiki into the one-stop-shop for Mailman  
documentation, and as part of that process, I made a script that  
moved the Mailman FAQ entries into the wiki.


http://wiki.list.org/display/DOC/Frequently+Asked+Questions

You'll see that there's around 200 entries in there now, organized  
into sections as they were originally in the FAQ Wizard:


http://www.python.org/cgi-bin/faqw-mm.py

I need some people who've got a few minutes to help out with cleaning  
up the wiki FAQ entries.  You don't need to know the answers -- I  
just need some volunteers who can fix some links and maybe do some  
organization.  I don't need any huge time commitment, just sign up  
for a wiki account and do an entry or two when you've got some spare  
time.


Most of the pages just need someone to convert the FAQ Wizard links  
to internal wiki links (eg: in http://wiki.list.org/x/PIA9), maybe  
fix some other formatting (eg: look at http://wiki.list.org/x/p4A9  
and how the preformatted stuff is inexplicably in three blocks rather  
than one).It's an easy job, it's just that at 200 pages, I could  
use some help!


If you have any questions or need any help getting started, please  
let me know!
