This is set up by your aliases, e.g.,
space-and-flight-archive, "|/majordomo/majordomo/wrapper digest -r -C -l
Then you define your digest aliases and set a byte limit to trigger digesting
(or run mkdigest via cron), per the FAQ and other docs.
Now, what *I* want to know is how digest (in 1.93) knows what the original
list name is, for use in removing the message_footer. That's not in the aliases
file, nor in majordomo.cf (that I could find).
