This comes up about every six months, so I'll answer it again :-)
Don't bother to change the "approve" script; you can do this without
changing any code.
Include all your lists in list A. The trick is to avoid duplicates;
you do this by combining the lists on the -outgoing side *after*
You can change your aliases for listA-outgoing, or you can just add
the other lists right into the listA list file. IMPORTANT: Add the
-outgoing aliases for the other lists, not the primary aliases.
So just subscribe listB-outgoing, listC-outgoing, etc to listA
and forget about the rest.
