Alternatively set up a list, say big_list, with subscribing and
unsubscribing closed, and do something like
cat [source lists] | tr '[A-Z]' '[a-z]' | sort | uniq > big_list
I have a Makefile which does exactly that for some lists. The config
for big_list has
restrict_post = big_list_posters
which is maintained separately.
