James publishes project ideas for Google Summer of Code '08

March 16, 2008

The James Team are delighted to announce that we’re proposing two project ideas for Google Summer of Code (GSOC) 2008. The project Ideas are set out on the Apache GSOC wiki [here]: .

In brief they are:

  • Develop a VERP Mailet to allow James to write VERP modified return addresses on outbound messages, and an inbound mailet/matcher to identify VERP bounces and invoke configurable “do something” code.
  • James’ provided mailing list manager is fine for small closed groups, but lacks the functionality of a more robust MLM, the project is to add some all or more of the following features subscriber and message moderation, double opt-in and bounce handling.
