I've noticed that all of the Internet Service Providers I belong to
seem to have their own announcement list that seems to go to all of
their zubscribers. I of course don't know if any of them use
Majordomo to administer them. Now, wouldn't it be possible to write
a Perl script that takes fields out of an /etc/passwd file and puts
them in exactly the right order to make a Majordomo user list file?
And so, since no zubscribe commands had to be submitted, no notification?
