Colibri is a "free software":http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Free_software used to handle mailing lists. It does the same task as "GNU mailman":http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GNU_Mailman or "majordomo":http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Majordomo_(software), but in a somewhat more modern way.

Colibri is written on "python":http://www.python.org and is based on the "django":http://www.djangoproject.com "ORM":http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Object-relational_mapping. This means you'll need python and "django":http://www.djangoproject.com on the server.

You do not need to use the web front-end, but if you do, you'll need some way to make your web browser execute python code (typically this means using "mod_python":http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mod_python, but there are numerous other ways).

Colibri is written in "python":http://www.python.org, and makes heavy use of both django "ORM":http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Object-relational_mapping and the "email package":http://docs.python.org/library/email.html of python.
