Hi, everybody.

Firstly, let me introduce myself. I am Choy Kho Yee, an comp. sci.
undergraduate student in Osaka University. For my final year project, I
have developed a mailing list archive management system called "MLwiki".

I have sent mails to some of the mailing lists not so long ago, so that
more people can help me test out this system. I have been getting
supportive answers from the survey about the system.

However, I would like to have more responses about the design and
implementation of the system, so here I sent this mail again. I hope
that you can spare some of your precious time to help me out with this.
If it is proved useful to the community, I would perhaps continue to
work on it.

More information about MLwiki is available on the main page of this
system, which is located at


and the survey at

The questionnaire

Thanks a lot.

--- The original mail that I sent not long ago is as follow ---

The name MLwiki is made up from the words "Mailing List" and "Wiki". It
was developed to overcome some weaknesses of the existing mailing list
archiving and searching system and to combine the power of wiki and the
huge amount of information in the mailing list archive. With MLwiki, it
is hoped that users can get the information they want faster and easier.
More information about MLwiki is available on the main page of this
system, which is located at


The questionnaire

Please read the introduction on the main page before testing the system
as it provides some vital information to fully utilize MLwiki. After
testing out the system, I would be glad if you can help me out by
filling in the questionnaire about this system, which can be accessed
through the above address or from MLwiki's main page.

Please understand that MLwiki is in its early stage of development and
therefore there might be many bugs hidden in it. Bugs reports are
welcome. And please remember that this system is still in an
experimental stage, all changes you submit might be lost in the future
release. But do feel free to test around. This website will be available
until 10 February 2006. Accessibility after that will be re-considered
depends on the response and the condition of the system.

Thanks a lot.
