I noticed DV‘s mladmin.py script for interfacing to mailman lists to purge held messages. My question is this – wouldn’t it have been easier to write an xmlrpc interface to the mailing list admin controls than to parse the html it spits out?
Once you have it sending and taking xmlrpc you could control it however you’d like in a consistent way rather than screen scraping. Just an idea for some enterprising hacker out there.
