NAME

mmarch - Rebuild a Mailman mailing list's archive.
 

SYNOPSIS

mmarch [options] <listname> [<mbox>]
 

DESCRIPTION

Use this command to rebuild the archives for a mailing list. You may want to do this if you edit some messages in an archive, or remove some messages from an archive.
 
-h, --help
 
Print this error message and exit.
 
-q, --quiet
 
Make the archiver output less verbose.
 
--wipe
 
First wipe out the original archive before regenerating. You usually want to specify this argument unless you're generating the archive in chunks.
 
-s N, --start= N
 
Start indexing at article N, where article 0 is the first in the mbox. Defaults to 0.
 
-e M, --end= M
 
End indexing at article M. This script is not very efficient with respect to memory management, and for large archives, it may not be possible to index the mbox entirely. For that reason, you can specify the start and end article numbers.
 
mbox is the path to a list's complete mbox archive. Usually this will be some path in the archives/private directory. For example:
 
% mmarch mylist archives/private/mylist.mbox/mylist.mbox
 
mbox is optional. If it is missing, it is calculated.
