Project description

GNU Mailman is a free, open source software “for managing electronic mail discussion and e-newsletter lists”. This project aims to produce a comprehensive guide for existing Mailman 2 users who wish to switch to Mailman 3. The guide will also cover some of the common problems faced during migration. The main focus of this project is to produce the aforementioned guide. However, considering the fact that the main focus might be delivered before the midpoint of GSOD period, this project will also create a guideline section on how to write documentation so that all documentation will have a sense of coherency with one another. This project will also produce a template for writing and updating documentation.
