Happy news: We've just finished loading the Python Software Foundation mailing lists. (Python is a popular programming language, overseen by the PSF.) With this load we're breaking a few records:
- Weighing in at 1,022,479 total messages, Python is now the largest community ever loaded since our initial launch. (We went live back in November with roughly 4 million Apache messages.)
- Half of those million mails are from a single list, python-list. That means python-list holds the new record for Crazy Huge What The Heck Can They Talk About So Much list. (And, would you believe, there's even more python-list histories from 1992-1995 still to load.)
- This puts our total combined MarkMail message count above 10,000,000. There was much hooting and hollering (and page refreshing) around here as the numbers clicked over.
- It's the biggest community ever loaded by our new hire Evan Paull. OK, it's the only community ever loaded by Evan. He started just a couple weeks ago. We figure after he's wrangled together a million message history, everything else will look easy.
As always, here's the traffic chart:
