If you read what I posted you'll see that ONE person would subscribe
to both; neither list would change at all, but the two lists would
result in being equivalent. This one person - presumably the person
who posed the question - would have some idea of what they were doing.
Anyway, it's just an idea, and however inelegant, it would work.
I have a situation that is actually more complicated that I wish
I could automate, but can't. I have two lists: one for announcements
and one for discussions. I want all the announcements to also
appear on the discussion list, and whatever announcements are posted
to the discussion list also get posted to the announcement list.
It's not so complicated. I just have to do some reposting.
The situation that was asked about is much simpler than what I do,
but the same approach can apply.
I agree with what you said about just shutting down one list and
telling those subscribers to move - that's the smartest way. What
I said is just an alternative.
