I'm not *exactly* sure what you want, but I think you mean that you want
messages from the global list to go to everyone subscribed to the local
list, but messages sent by people on the local list to go to the global
list and not be distributed to everyone on the local list.
I'm not sure if it will work, but this is a hack that just might to the
trick. I use listname as the name of the list, local.host and
global.host as the hostnames of the machines running your majordomo
list and the big listserv list, respectively:
Note that I don't use resend in this example, because its formatting
properties are unnessecary (the list messages should be already properly
formatted), but you may want to use resend anyhow, for its security
features prehaps. In that case, this should do the trick:
fred:"|/path/to/wrapper resend -l listname -h email@example.com listname-outgoing"
Either way, create the list file /path/to/lists/listname, listname.config,
listname.passwd, etc... Then subscribe firstname.lastname@example.org to the
Local users would then mail to email@example.com with "subscribe
listname", and would receive their from the local list, but when they
mailed firstname.lastname@example.org, it would go to the larger list instead (where
it would theoretically be redistributed to the local list)
I hope this has been of some help.
