I’m carrying the Secure List Server patch for mailman on the
installations we use at work. (Reminds me to get the time to
update and polish this and upload to Debian proper…)

It’s not perfect and a bit buggy, but it works, although I
tested S/MIME only once, as we mostly use PGP.

But I don’t think that this list uses Mailman 2…

No, a highly patched sirc (somewhat sucky C frontend plus
somewhat less sucky Perl backend), until such time as I
actually write an IRC client in mksh. Oh, and sometimes,
tinyirc which is pure C and just small.

To be honest, I can’t stand using Plan 9 concepts like that
in a Unix world. Not without a sort of frontend to be able
to use it efficiently, anyway. (The frontend needs not be
graphical, of course.)
