As I said, they are related exclusively to the ASF mailing lists. I did
not even used these scripts to setup my development setup of mod_mbox, a
proof they're not as needed as you claim they are.

I don't really think the current trunk/ directory structure is really
clean. In module-2.0/ you can find, all messed up, mod-mbox-util -which
is all but an Apache HTTPd module-, the libmbox library, and the module
itself. Not to mention these scripts, of course.

Something like :

lib/                  -- libmbox code (mbox_* files)
util/                 -- utilities directory
util/mod-mbox-util/   -- mod-mbox-util code
util/scripts/         -- the scripts, if you really want them here
module-2.0/           -- module source code (mod_mbox_* files)

sounds a lot clearer, and understable at first look.

Extract from repos/asf/httpd/mod_mbox/branches/httpd-mbox-if/STATUS,
updated by me during July :

Other known issues / ToDo:

    * Documentation
      - For developpers : internals
      - For admins      : setup and update
      - For users       : usage, interface description, ...

Just wait. This will come :)
