Subject: RFA: ezmlm-browse -- Web browser for ezmlm-idx archives
Date: Mon, 29 Aug 2011 18:38:09 +0100
Package: wnpp
Severity: normal

I request an adopter for the ezmlm-browse package.

The package description is:
 This is ezmlm-browse, a web interface for browsing ezmlm-idx (version
 0.40 or later) archives.  The default presentation is similar to that
 of the ezmlm-cgi archive browser that is part of ezmlm-idx, but with
 the addition of threaded subjects and online posting / replying.
 However, the output is completely template drive, so you can make it
 fit into your current web scheme.

I adopted this package last year in order to tidy it up a bit and fix
some RC bugs before the squeeze release; however it's likely that I won't
be using ezmlm-browse myself for much longer.

At the time of writing, a new upstream version is awaiting packaging.

My git repository

contains some work-in-progress on this; the TODO list is:

    - fix ezmlm-browse-reconfig (error: ImportError: No module named globals)
    - Automatically run ezmlm-browse-reconfig in postinst
    - Clean up obsolete /etc/ezmlm-browse/Makefile in postinst
    - What to do about HTML templates; previously conffiles
    - Is zip file dist method okay?
    - Install wrapper as an alternative (user could dpkg-statoverride it)

Please get in touch if you'd like to adopt this package, or even just
contribute some fixes to the version in git.
