I was writing some coverage tests, and started on a class called MailmanProxy inside of It imports Mailman, which isn't in the standard library. I've attached a failing test to demonstrate the problem, but I didn't want to delete the section from as a beginner.

That was a correct decision :)

It certainly shouldn't be simply deleted, since that would break backward compatibility.  Barry, is this something we (ie: you, in this case :) wish to continue to maintain?

If not, we have the options of deprecation-and-removal, or deprecation-in-place (in the latter case we just stick a comment in the file...)

I think it should be deprecated and eventually removed.  I don't remember why I put it in this file, and besides Mailman 3 won't use it.

I'm closing this as won't fix since is deprecated and will likely not get any future development.  Please see aiosmtpd as a much better third party replacement.
