ask has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I am making it to work with the perl.org nntp server. If you didn't know, then the "newsserver" I use is colobus (http://trainedmonkey.com/colobus/) which serves directly from the ezmlm archives. It's supposed to replace the MHonArc archives at http://archive.perl.org/.
I have put the current Mason components up at http://develooper.com/~ask/tmp/mason-nntp.tar.gz. If anyone wants to hack new features into it, then I'd be most grateful and be happy to put it up on http://nntp.perl.org/, of course with proper credits.
To make the threading more efficient I've been considering letting the web interface access colobus' BerkeleyDB databases directly, or export separate BerkeleyDBs with the relevant data for use in the web interface.
