[ALLY] Re: List Processing Changes

From: carl:pacific at: 20-Oct-2000 9:36

When I wrote SELMA, it was with the full intention that it would be open source and that a community of interested people would pick it up and expand on it. It was an just example script. SELMA is not a product of REBOL Tech, it is a short script that served its job for more than two years. It has processed more than 500'000 incoming email messages and 500'000'000 outgoing messages. It's message base is over a gigabyte of files. We ran five SELMA lists in parallel over a 128KB ISDN (at old building). Not bad for a few lines of REBOL code and a few hours of programming. SELMA needs to be adopted by a group of folks who will give it the attention and features it needs. It is yours make great. I have suggested this before. RT does not have time to work on it. We've got Core, Command, View, Link, Serve, Apache, and far too much other stuff to do. Larry Wall didn't write all the Perl applications of the world. So, tell me Petr: when was your last script contribution to the REBOL community? Maybe SELMA should be your new project. Get busy. -Carl At 10/20/00 06:41 AM +0200, you wrote:
