Maybe a good Majordomo manual should explain some of the basics, and
make very clear that one needs to have an experienced person available
both initally (to check the set-up) and later, in case something goes
wrong in a bad way (e.g. a mail loop)?

Ok, I'm willing to contibute to such a manual, and also act as editor
and coordinate such an effort, _provided_ that at least eleven others
also volunteer to contribute to this. Could everyone who is willing to
contribute please send a private e-mail to <email@example.com>; I will
report in a week or so whether there are enough volunteers to start this
project or not.
May blessings from the eternal God surprise and overtake you!
