Here are my off the cuff thoughts on where to next (in no particular order):

  1. Complete control for HTML formatting (for example, I love the concept of the "menu" but don't particularly care for the implementatoin as it is now).
  2. I think a drop-in replacement of the original EIT Hypermail is a good idea even IF the only compatibility is the command line arguments.
  3. I would be forever in your debt if it were possible to re-format previously archived lists into the latest and greatest format. Most of the time, I have not been able to keep around the original email for all the lists I archive.
  4. Locking to prevent race conditions is an old favorite of mine, as you know :)
  5. Easy removal of a message from the archive (after locking is implemented, preferably :)
  6. Archiving by date sent instead of date received.
  7. Both "real documentation" (your words, not mine! :) and documentation on how things work internally.
  8. NT support.

Where I can help:

I'm willing to work with you and/or others on the real documentation. I can help with testing on Windows NT (workstation). I will continue to test on Solaris 2.5 for real time archives. I will start testing one Sun OS 4.1.x today or tomorrow latest.

Not sure how formal your panel would be for the go-ahead on this release but I can certainly let you know when I think it's ready :)

...just my thoughts...
