HyperKitty, the next-generation Mailman archiver, is advancing at a reasonable pace, and the time has come for its first alpha release.

The code has been published on PyPI :

I’ve also written some installation and development documentation using the wonderful Sphinx documentation system, which allows us to publish the documentation online at ReadTheDocs.org.

If you’re interested in HyperKitty, want to test it, or even contribute to it, it’s now pretty easy, just follow the procedure described in the doc. Django hackers, and even regular Python hackers, will find it quite common.

Please report any bug you can find on our tracker project page.

I hope you’ll like it !
