If a man speaks in a forest, and his wife's not there, is he still wrong?

Modifying multiple mailman mailing lists

I run quite a few mailing lists for my various projects. For each one, I have 4 lists: projectname, projectname-trac, projectname-svn, projectname-dev.

I have a script that sets all these up automatically for new projects. However, I managed to get some wrong, and wanted to change various values for *all* lists.

I used the config_list script as follows:

for l in $(list_lists -b) ; do config_list -vi list_changes.txt $l  ; done

list_changes.txt contained the following text:

accept_these_nonmembers = ['projects@example.com']
bounce_matching_headers = ''
real_name = mlist.internal_name()
owner = ['admin@example.com']
subject_prefix = ''.join(['[', mlist.internal_name(), '] '])
msg_footer = """_______________________________________________
http://lists.projects.robinbowes.com/mailman/listinfo/%(_internal_name)s/"""

Job done!
