Hello, all

I need to create multiple listserv that have exactly the same
settings, except the names. I'm not sure that it is possible to
duplicate settings across multiple listserv. What's problems I may
run into if I duplicate the settings?

Thank you very much,

    The normal way to do this is to run 'bin/config_list -o' to write the
    settings of the 'template' list to a file. Then edit that file and
    remove all the list specific settings such as real_name, description,
    etc. and use the resulting file to configure the other lists with
    'bin/config_list -i'. See 'bin/config_list --help'.

    This really seems to be a frequently recurring theme here.

    I have taken it upon myself to learn Python to do another
    customization I have in mind (I want to be able to trigger external
    scripts on subscribe/unsubscribe events) and I may try to implement
    such a feature as a sort of "final project" for myself.

    No promises on whether I will get this done or when it will happen if
    I do. It's not a high priority for me.

    If I do choose to implement it, I will make the code available as a patch.
