    begin braindump

    tracking the mailing list

    statistics for this month/week
    longest threads
    longests emails (ignore, advertising/sigs/pgp blocks/commit messages but
    not commit descriptionss)
    commit summary (changelog daemon)

    end braindump

    not even remotely as useful as Jespers summaries but a dump like this
    would might make it easier to do the weekly news or just allow people to
    more easily dip into the archive.

    maybe someone even has some scripts already lying around or knows of
    existing stuff that would help.

    if i have time i intend to start helping with mailing list summaries (but
    for now i need to make sure to pass exams in stay in uni)

    off to hear martins speech now
