I have been using sman ever since I read your Linux Journal article.
It's working great and it's part of my essential kit now :-)
On not-so-related note, I have been hacking on index_hypermail.pl to
support Mailman. Since changes are significant, result is
index_mailman.pl. Current version is available at:
It's complete package, along with frameset that inserts search box on
top and displays Mailman pages or search results on bottom. I wonder if
there is interest to include index_mailman.pl as example in swish-e
distribution (alone or with configuration files which could be written
inside index_mailman.pl pod) or should I release separate package as sman is.
