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 = """_______________________________________________

Job done!

National Express provide free wifi on the train; as you can see it seems to work well! unfortunately, the power socket at my seat is not working and my laptop doesn't work on battery for very long, so this post was typed on my PDA.

Blog moves to new server.

After battling for several months with various root kits on the server hosting this site I've finally admitted defeat and taken it offline.

I've moved this blog plus my projects and downloads onto another machine so it *should* be business as usual.

Please drop me an email and let me know if you find anything that's broken.

Back online - for now

After getting root-kitted due to a vulerability in the rich text editor used by geeklog, I took the server hosting this site offline.

I'm in the process of moving the whole lot to a new server, but in the meantime, I've brought the server back online.

Sorry for any inconvenience.
