......@@ -15,12 +15,27 @@ Mailman 2.1 is available from the following sources:
- `Launchpad <>`__
- `GNU <>`__
Mailman 3.0 is available from the `Python Package Index (PyPI) <>`__.
*Note: the GNU ftp site may lag behind Launchpad, especially just after
a release announcement. It often takes a little while for the GNU ftp
site to catch up.*
Mailman 3.0 is available from the `Python Package Index (PyPI) <>`__.
Mailman 3.0 has been split into a suite of related components. The easiest
way to get them and install them all is to use `mailman bundler
<>`__ and follow the instructions
that come with it.
Here's a list of the names of the Mailman 3.0 components:
- *Mailman Suite* refers to the collection of related Mailman projects that provide all the pieces of a typical mailing list management setup.
- *Mailman Core* is the part that delivers the emails and handles the mailing list and user data
- *Postorius* is the web interface that allows users (list members, list admins, moderators) to change their user settings and the settings for their lists.
- *HyperKitty* is the archiver which provides a web interface to access GNU Mailman v3 archives as well as ways interact with the lists. It can behave a little like a web forum, for those who prefer not to use email.
- *MailmanClient* is the library that provides official Python bindings for the GNU Mailman 3 REST API. This allows you to write your own front end or scripts for interacting with Mailman. (It's also what Postorius uses to interact with Mailman Core.)
- *Mailman Bundler* is a tool to help you install all of Mailman Suite via PyPI
