NAMEdigest_arch - Deprecated Mailman digest archiver
NOTE: This is being deprecated since mailman has been shifted over to an external archiver (ie, andrew kuchling's latest version of pipermail.)
This program shouldn't be attempted by people who don't understand Python. I wrote it to build archives for a few lists I'd been running for a long time under majordomo.
Convert majordomo digests all stored in one directory into mailbox format. Note that the digests correct order in the dir should be alphabetical order.
The output file is ARCHIVE.ME in the same directory the digests are in. Run this program before you transfer the majordomo list.
To get the output file archived, create the list under mailman, run this script, and then do the following:
cat ARCHIVE.ME >> ~mailman/mailman/lists/mylist/archived.mail
You also need to adjust the variable: NUM_LINES_TO_STRIP_FROM_TOP
