i thought of a way to do it with email addresses, but as
you say two conditions (maybe three) would be required: that
the addresses match vis ? vis the mailinglist and the
TWiki-space, and that a poster to the list have a TWiki

But overall a nicer way to accomplish a connection would be
to work on a mailman<->TWiki interface that would put the
archives under TWiki, which I did talk about to the TWiki
developers about some time ago, but in some ways a
mailinglist (especially an archive of same) doesn?t fit
easily into the TWiki idea, that of being
modifiable-editable by anyone.  There is sophisticated
access and write control built in to TWiki but the general
idea of it is as a group workspace.
