Note though that the biopython mailing archive source file was damaged about
a year ago (see this post:
http://www.biopython.org/pipermail/biopython/2005-March/002557.html). I have
bits and pieces of the old mailing archive from which we can probably put
together a full archive, but I don't have the necessary file permissions to
fix this. Is there some way to solve this?

I don't have a strong opinion about this. I don't know much about Quixote
except for using it a couple of times to make some minor changes to the
Biopython website. If somebody likes Plone or Wiki better, I'm all for it.
