Last year Alan Stebbens (firstname.lastname@example.org) posted some info on 1.92 patches
he had made. Unfortunately, I seem to have lost the original mail (I'm sure
its in the list archives) but I do have a printout. His patches, I thought,
added some very cool features -- some of which address things recently asked
for on this list. These features were:
auto - (usual) any subscribe
local - only addrs in $mydomain can sub/unsub
sponsor - sub/unsub approval by list members (proxy)
open - (usual) self-subscribe
closed - (usual) approval by list owner
moderated - moderator post
private - member post
local - $mydomain can post
public - (usual) anyone can post
hidden - no one can see
private - members can see
local - $mydomain can see
public - (usual) anyone can see
digested - digest flag
archived - archive flag
When Alan originally posted, there was no followup discussion saying these
ideas were particularly good or bad, and no agreement to roll these patches
into the official release. I would have liked to see them integrated. I
could certainly use the functionality of "private" posts and "local"
subscriptions. It sounds like others could too...
Is there any interest in trying to add this functionality to 1.94? Did
anyone ever try these patches on 1.92?
