[D-community-discuss] machine administration / email setup

I plan to administrate the machine with a team. Therefore I plan to use
another svn-repository on alioth, but within the d-community alioth project.
(Readable for all, writeable for some.) - See appendix A for info on the svn
I'd say by next weekend the dedicated machine should be setup rudimentarly,
that means, at least hosting the webpage as it is now.
Regarding email-setup, I have the following thoughts, feedback very welcome :)
- email is expensive in cpu-load because of spam-filtering, so getting an
email-address needs to be more "difficult" than to get on planets
- just using a .forward file wont work, because this would cause forwarding
spam and we would end up in spam blacklists etc.
- so people need to be able to poll emails from us. an imap-server needs more
cpu and disk-io, so we will (at least in the beginning) only provide pop3,
maybe pop3s, maybe only encrypted authentication.
- smtp after pop
- some, not to heavy, spam and virus filtering.
- the email setup is on the todo-list after setting up the machine, the CMS,
the design, the planets & defining the procedures. But this todo-list is
certainly not linear, but can be worked on in parallel (at least partly).
appendix A :-)
<person1> h01ger: in debian-kde we just have 1 subversion archive, but many
people do only have write-access to parts of it.
<h01ger> person1, how did you implement it? additional groups?
<person1> h01ger: well... I actually don't fully know how it was setup.
<person1> but I know how to add/remove people ;)
<person1> http://svn.debian.org/wsvn/pkg-kde/scripts/svn-hooks/?rev=0&sc=0 - I
guess it is the two commit-access files - they are placed
in /svn/pkg-kde/svn-hooks (or whatever)
<person2> seems to be a pre-commit hook
<person1> seems person2 is right ,)
<person2> yeah, looking at /svn/pkg-kde/hooks/commit-access-control.cfg :)
(anonymized as I'm too lazy atm to ask if its ok to forward this here...)
