Mapping hyperkitty users
I am working on the reputation system for HyperKitty. The reputation system comes to play when the content is generated by the community. We know which user posted which answer and we give points to the user depending on the response of community to his / her answer.
In hyperkitty, we get the archives from mailman. We offer users the power to vote the message through the web interface. But the users who create content are not necessarily the same who generate the content. And, for the reputation system to work correctly, it is very important for us to map the users who actually posted the content to the users who are consuming the content.
After talking to wacky, I found that we are actually planning to have user for every author in the mailing list. Hence problem solved!
