Subject Re: Design patterns for flame-free mail list
Date Fri, 25 Feb 2000 00:01:16 GMT

This sounds a bit like a faq-o-matic, (see openldap.org, for example), which
is integrated with ht-dig for searches. That's probably a pretty out-of-the-box
solution. If anyone wants this, put it on the todo list and I'l sign up once I
can find some time.
