FAQ
I am trying to copy or clone a list.

Is it possible to make a list with my perfected options and then clone it to have
another name with all the same attributes.
I have been through the files in $prefix/bin, this is where i would have expected to
find a command of this type. Am I missing it, or is it not possible.


Thanks for any help!

    It's a piece of cake, and one that I am very appreciative of since my
    first client had me set up five new lists all at once. The key is
    config_list in the script directory (/home/mailman/bin by default).

    Get the right syntax from the help page, of course, but basically you
    setup all of your lists with new_list, configure one of them all the way
    through to the last detail, and then run
    config_list -o <filename> <listname>
    which creates a Python file with all the controlling attributes.

    You edit that file, either deleting or commenting out the parts that are
    not universal, and then run it in reverse:
    config_list -i <filename> <list2name>

    Not quite as intuitive as us object-oriented user types might prefer,
    but close. And it does work.
