Google Summer of Code 2011

The GNU Mailman project is happy once again to be participating in the Google Summer of Code for the year 2011. This time, we're involved under the Python Software Foundation's banner.

This year's focus for Mailman projects will be continuing the great work done last year on the new web user interface for Mailman 3, work on the Mailman 3 engine, and other activities around Mailman 3. We're very happy that Florian Fuchs and Anna Granudd have agreed to mentor this year, and Barry Warsaw will also be providing mentorship. Mentors and students should contact us on the public mailing list

List of projects

Here then are a list of projects for GSoC 2011. We're not limited to these, so if you have other ideas, do let us know! We'll expand on these as we get students interested in working on them.


If you want to be a mentor, please contact us on the mailman-developers mailing list. Current list of mentors:


If you are a student who wants to work with us this year, again, please contact us on the mailman-developers mailing list. Current list of students are:

Getting started

The code for Mailman 3 is on launchpad here:

You'll note that the base code and the web UI code are actually separate right now, so make sure you install both if you want to see the web UI!

The code produced by Systers last year can be found here: – note that this code was developed for a modified Mailman 2.1 installation, so it won't apply directly to Mailman 3.
