Having one system to manage all your packages? :)

I don't know the state of that. It has a TODO:

This is the core mailman3 package. Should be complemented by:
- MailmanClient (an API client lib)
- Postorius (web interface)
- HyperKitty (archive interface)

Sadly latest stable Django is typically not supported, which complicates laying down dependencies.

Perhaps you can try it out and get back to us if it's usable? Then I
can import it.
