You are quite welcome to help me with how to do it :) I'm swamped with
Majordomo code -- Jeff Wasilko sent me his subscribe/confirm patch and I
was going to use that & cut out the part I need by hand -- if this process
can be made easier by doing it a different way, that would be great.
i.e., you have LIBRARIES??? So you could just snip out a subscribe/confirm
part, build a shell around it and run that??? And the subscribe/confirm
part wouldn't take up a lot of disk space? Is Majordomo 2 easy to modify?
I would be doing some modifying; for example, registration addresses
would be changed somewhat, sorted, and listed with the time of
registration, similarly for addresses of those who want acknowledgements.
I doubt it would be easy to adapt Majordomo for the posting part of a
robomoderator but I already adapted STUMP for that.
