I'm new here, so not sure if this is appropriate:
In regards to FAQ 3.27:
Am I the only one who would find it extremely helpful if duties
could be better split? Certainly for large lists. That is:
Owners = who can determine the list's configuration
Admins = who handle subscriptions and bounces
Moderators = who handle list messages
If needed admin/mod could be combined as one.
Or alternatively, that you can specify an email address
for each Notification?
The current problem is that in academic lists, the
owner/sponsor of a forum often needs to be an University
staff member, who however would delegate daily running to
students etc (mods). But with Mailman, on a bad day, the poor
Prof would get 70 messages per day (bounces, subscription,
approvals, etc). It's not workable IMHO (I'm a mod BTW).
AFAICT in the present system, reducing mail to an owner can
only be done by setting admin_immed_notify,
(and a few more)
to NO, which is clearly not an ideal solution...well, no solution
at all, really.
Any chance of this duties seperation [i.e. owners are nót
automatically mods], being implemented in future versions?
