My problem is, to get any list-specific output from the mailman/cgi-bin/*

figure out how to do this with the shell command. If I follow the standard
syntax from the web (e.g. `/usr/local/mailman/cgi-bin/listinfo/somelist`) the
shell looks for a non-existent program in the non-existent listinfo directory
(listinfo is, of course, a script).

Using the scheme outlined above, how can I pass the listname to the various
cgi-bin scripts from mailman to capture their list-specific output for
customized pages?

You need to do what your web server does. Namely, in the above example,
it sets


in the environment it passes to the CGI. In general, an HTTP GET for a
URL like <http://example.com/mailman/wrapper/more/stuff?query> will
result in the web server setting


(and a bunch of other stuff, most of which we don't look at) in the
environment it passes to the wrapper.
