We are currently using Mailman (2.1.x) to handle our newsletters/mailing
lists at work, but recently people would like to ask the current 
members of our mailing lists on the "topics" that interest them, as well
as the newcomers, and then, once an email/newsletter has to be sent, 
be able to select only the interested subscribers (based on topics). 

Unfortunately it is currently not possible to add "metadata"-like 
information to subscribers in Mailman so I'm looking for alternatives.. 
any idea? 

One option could be to upgrade to Mailman3 and create on-the-fly 
mailing lists through some web interface.. but I'd like to avoid 
rebuilding the wheel it something like this already exists ..

Thank you :)
