I was in Europe and missed the discussion, but if the consensus was that
it would be nice to toggle moderation (which I see as a much higher
priority than the other configuration options), then it seems that there
is a possible hack that would be relatively easy to implement. Remember
earlier versions when a list was closed by creating the file
LIST.closed? How about having Mj look for a file called LIST.moderate,
and its presence would supercede the moderate= option in the
I'm not much of a perl programmer, but since Mj can create and rewrite
the LIST.passwd file, it shouldn't take much to implement this. The main
issue is whether the development team feels that it is worthwhile.
