Configuring Majordomo to work under qmail once you're familiar with qmail
is very close the same amount of work as configuring Majordomo to work
under sendmail provided you use something like my mjdispatch and mjinject
scripts; you have to install Majordomo, you have to set Majordomo's
configuration variables to point at the right mailer, and you have to set
up aliases for incoming Majordomo messages.
Two things make it harder than it should really have to be: Majordomo
assumes sendmail's owner-address, whereas qmail is happier with
address-owner, so you want to apply my owner patch to Majordomo; and you
have to edit each Majordomo script file that you use and tell it where
The resulting system, however, *doesn't require the wrapper*, which is
such a huge win from the perspective of getting it to work on a variety of
systems (some of which may not have compilers) and from a security
standpoint that I consider it a fairly massive improvement.

qmail, see <URL:ftp://ftp.eyrie.org/pub/software/majordomo/>.
