Subject [jira] Created: (INFRA-549) Please create a virtual list for forrest and lenya
Date Fri, 09 Sep 2005 22:13:30 GMT
Please create a virtual list for forrest and lenya
--------------------------------------------------

         Key: INFRA-549
         URL: http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/INFRA-549
     Project: Infrastructure
        Type: Task
  Components: Mailing Lists  
    Reporter: Thorsten Scherler


I would like to ask whether it is possible to create a virtual list for
forrest and lenya. Like described in
http://marc.theaimsgroup.com/?t=112004132700001&r=1&w=2

"If we make a virtual list (which I prefer) that posts mails on both
developer lists with added [lefo] in the subject, then each PMC will be
responsible for their dev list, as is now."
http://marc.theaimsgroup.com/?l=forrest-dev&m=112013695014297&w=2

It should work like in the following scenario:
"subsciberName.at.domain.com sends mail to lefo.at.apache.org.
1) lefo.at.apache.org is subscribed to dev.at.forrest.apache.org and
dev.at.lenya.apache.org and posts (fowards) all mails to both list.
2) Ideally it will add [lefo] to the subject line. 
3) The lefo list will set the reply-to header to itself, so that all
replies go to both lists again."

Here is what I did/would have done (I did not have permissions for doing
it myself and I prefer that the infrastructure team gives green
lights). ;-)  BTW how can I get rights to help here on infrastructure?

I logged in to minotaur and 'cd /var/qmail/alias/'.
Then I 'cat .qmail-committers'. This file is responsible to mail all
committers at apache if somebody sends a mail to
committers.at.apache.org. It is doing this with a piped command.

I reckon the following commands would create the correct .qmail-lefo
and .qmail-lefo-commits:
echo "| /var/qmail/bin/forward lenya-dev forrest-dev">.qmail-lefo
echo "| /var/qmail/bin/forward lenya-commits
forrest-svn">.qmail-lefo-commits

That would be sufficient for 1), if I understood the above mentioned
README right:
"Yes, this also means that 
    bar-foo@apache.org
is going to be the same as
    foo@bar.apache.org"

So I just tried further this beautiful README. I started with 
> sudo -H -u apmail tcsh
Password:
thorsten is not in the sudoers file.  This incident will be reported.

Ok, I do not have permissions. ;-)

The command that I wanted to invoke afterward is (replace .at. with @):
/home/apmail/bin/makelist.roy.sh -m thorsten.at.apache.org lefo
lefo-commits

Following http://www.ezmlm.org/ezman/ezman3.html#ss3.7 "Adding a subject
prefix to messages" I would have then 
"...just place the text in the file DIR/prefix." where the text would be
[lefo]. This would do 2) from the scenario.

The last step 3) I would have done with
http://www.ezmlm.org/faq/FAQ-9.html#ss9.8 "put ``reply-to'' into
DIR/headerremove, and ``Reply-To: list@host.dom'' into DIR/headeradd."
