mailman2lurker - Import mailman lists and their archives into a lurker database.
has mainly two functions. First, it parses mailman's lists
and creates a lurker configuration include out of them. Second, it imports
archives from mailman lists into a lurker database.
To build a new lurker database from mailmans archives, first run '
'. Next you need to add ' include =
' into /etc/lurker/lurker.conf.local.
Finally import mailmans mboxes by running ' mailman2lurker -i
If you want to add new lists to an already existing lurker configuration, run '
mailman2lurker -p -w newlists
' and afterwards 'mailman2lurker -i
'. This will import only the mbox files of mailman lists
that have been added to the lurker configuration because they were new to
- -p, --parse
- Parse mailman lists, and create a lurker configuration
include file containing all parsed lists. Lists that are already
configured in lurker are ignored.
- -i, --import
- Import archives of all lists. This parses the lurker
configuration and imports the mailman mbox at
- -c, --config <config>
- Use <config> as lurker configuration file.
- -o, --outfile <outfile>
- Write list configuration to <outfile>. If this
is not specified, <lurker.conf>.mailman will be used. This option is
only useful in conjunction with -p.
- -g, --group <group>
- Use <group> for new lists. Default is 'undef'.
This option is only useful in conjunction with -p.
- -a, --listhost <listhost>
- Use <listhost> as host for new list addresses.
If a new list is called 'mylist' and < listhost> is
lists.org, then the list address will be firstname.lastname@example.org. Default is
'example.org'. This option is only useful in conjunction with
- -l, --link <url link>
- Use <url link> as base for links of new lists.
If a list is called 'mylist', and < url link> is
'http://lists.org', then the link address will be http://lists.org/mylist.
Default is 'http://example.org'. This option is only useful in conjunction
- -s, --lang <language>
- Use <language> as language for new lists.
Needs to be a language token. Default is 'en'. This option is only useful
in conjunction with -p.
- -w, --write-lists <file>
- Write a list of all lists that have been added to the
lurker configuration. Safe that list in < file>. Default is
off. This option is only useful in conjunction with -p.
- -x, --list-cmd <file>
- Use <command|file> to get the list of mailman
lists that should be parsed. When < command|file> is a
command, it needs to end with ' |'. Default is
'/var/lib/mailman/bin/list_lists |'. This option is only useful in
conjunction with -p.
- -f, --listfile <file>
- Import only lists that are listed in <file>.
This option is only useful in conjunction with -i.
- -d, --lists
- Import only lists that are given as argument. This option
is only useful in conjunction with -i.
- -h, --help
- Display a help message.
- -v, --version
- Display mailman2lurker's version number.
