No it does not. Javien is working on it, hopefully they will get done with
it in a few more months. From my understanding it will be a hybrid system
with this mailing list continuing as normal, but also crossposted to their
web system. You will be able to rate people and hopefully see ratings both
on the web, and in normal emails using simple clickable URLs. I don't
know all the details yet.
