Yes, that is the expected behavior. Postorius is just one of the front-end for Mailman (and only one, for now), so we didn't think it would make sense to create account for every Mailman User in Postorius as well.
Ok thanks. From my perspective this is confusing behaviour though, especially for people new to the concept of mailing lists. There are three things to understand in the suite - mailman, postorius and hyperkitty. It seems that hyperkitty is trying hard to be a web forum and actually does a really good job (one reason why we're switching), but postorious links to it as an archive rather than a full interface to the discussion. The default welcome email didn't contain any web links to postorius or hyperkitty.
I realise I can change such texts and will spend some time on this. I'd be interested to hear advice from others who have done this sort of thing.
So, basically everyone has to go through the sign-up process, which isn't really hard if you choose one of the social logins.
It wouldn't be very hard to write a script that
"creates" User accounts for everyone and then users go through the "Forgot Password"
workflow to set their passwords. You'd get the list of all users from Mailman's API and
then do a
get_or_create() on each one of them (simplest of all approaches,
you can ofcourse better ways to do the same).
Ok, I'll look into this.
Thanks for the https nudge also by the way, it is on my todo!
