I'm using Majordomo 1.94.1 on a Sparc running SunOS 4.1.3, perl 4.036.
The FAQ says something I haven't been able to reproduce:
3.5 - How can I hide lists so they can't be viewed by 'lists'?
That is what advertise and noadvertise are for. ...
A list display follows the rules:
>>>> 1. If the from address is on the list, it is shown.
2. If the from address matches a regexp in noadvertise (e.g. /.*/) the
list is not shown.
#1 doesn't seem to be true: the list is never advertised, even to
addresses on the list. I have these settings in bounces.config:
advertise << END
noadvertise << END
But when I send "lists" and "which" to majordomo, it says:
firstname.lastname@example.org serves the following lists:
Use the 'info <list>' command to get more information
about a specific list.
The string 'email@example.com' appears in the following
entries in lists served by firstname.lastname@example.org:
See how "which" shows me on the bounces list, but it isn't on "lists"?
I'm no expert on the code for "lists", but it doesn't seem to have any
checks to see whether a subscriber is asking: If noadvertise matches
the address, then the list name isn't shown by "lists".
If I'm not missing something, which needs fixing: majordomo or the FAQ?
