You can do it with the same instructions you could do it with the sendmail;
except the aliases must have quotes (") around embedded white-spaces.
This following is uterly messy way used at vger.rutgers.edu -- which is
because I myself don't understand all of the environmental requirements
of the Majordomo, and thus haven't gone to lengths of creating support
scripts for it -- additional special processing in aliases.cf, I guess.
More of my musings below.
---- aliases -----
majordomo: "|/usr/local/etc/majordomo/wrapper majordomo"
# sparclinux majordomo setup
sparclinux: "|/usr/local/etc/majordomo/wrapper resend -p bulk -M 10000 -l sparclinux -f sparclinux -h vger.rutgers.edu -s sparclinux-outgoing"
sparclinux-request: "|/usr/local/etc/majordomo/wrapper request-answer sparclinux"
# Actual 'sparclinux-outgoing' is ZMailer list maintained by the
vger:/disk1/u3/mea# ls -l zm/lists/*sparc*
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root slinux 35 Mar 30 1997 zm/lists/sparclinux-outgoing -> /vger/u3/majordomo/lists/sparclinux
About those musings:
- The main place for support should be (I think) aliases.cf,
but they can be placed into fqdnaliases.cf as well.
- There seem to be following "entry vectors":
- listname --> majordomo-resend
- owner-listname --> some person (file owner ?)
- listname-owner --> owner-listname
- listname-archive --> to some file
- listname-request --> majordomo request
What else is needed ? How to auto-parametrize some of these
Primary source could be existence of specifically named file
in a special directory.
I don't much like writing router scripts which require user to
customize them, thus perhaps some script to generate those parts
of alias file which contain Majordomo lists.
