Petter posted yesterday about Listadmin, the quick way to moderate mailman lists.

Petter: THANKS.

I am a fan of automatization. But, yes, I had never thouguht of doing this. Why? Don't know. But this is way easier than using the Web interface for Mailman:

I don't know how in many years of managing several mailing lists I never thought about this! I'm echoing this, as I know several of my readers run mailman as well, and might not be following Planet Debian.

Handy

Toño Galicia wrote some similar circa 2002, as I only moderated a pair of lists then, was really not troubled when the interface of mailman now I also had really not that much traffic on my lists, but this looks really handy and useful like the time that all the CONSOL lists ran in my machine and had at first lot of moderating, but at that time delegate, then no moderate worked first.

But Petter really is a listmaster ;)
