Now that the wiki's posting policy is closed again (cf #450 zwiki.org open to spam), issue mail-in to the wiki will no longer work (because it can't recognize list subscribers directly).

bugs@zwiki.org could become an alias for the list, or we just tell people to send bugs to the list. Then, the right title should cause an appropriate issue to be created. Eg '[IssueNoXXXX issue description]?'. XXXX should be assumed to mean "the next available issue number".

But I'd rather have bugs@zwiki.org accept any subject like before.

why not configure with mailman? --PieterB, 2003/04/27 21:47 GMT
I think only a few people will use e-mail for sending issues. Why don't you make bugs@zwiki.org a seperate mailinglist, which you can set to approval and have the zwikilist as a member for that list. Regular posters can subscribe themselves to the mailinglist, and set their account to "no mail" on the bug list.

i meant approving messaging with a low spam score (or allow them if they are a subscriber).

I think we can do something like this:

I think that works. mailin.py is perhaps not the right place for preprocessing list mail, but it's already there..

But on the other hand, I haven't fully understood your plan.

simpler: --SimonMichael, 2003/05/06 22:54 GMT
Or, perhaps
