I have tried to migrate a medium (795 users) list from majordomo to mailman with small success. I have tried:
- from the administrative interface I get an error, this is what I get on
the log: Note that there is not quota for mailman user
Oct 31 18:13:25 2000 (10519) Failed config.db write, retaining old state. [Errno 122] Disk quota exceeded Oct 31 18:13:25 2000 (10519) Delivery exception: Oct 31 18:13:25 2000 (10519) Traceback (innermost last): File "/home/mailman//Mailman/Handlers/HandlerAPI.py", line 82, in do_pipeline func(mlist, msg, msgdata) File "/home/mailman//Mailman/Handlers/SMTPDirect.py", line 77, in process mlist.Lock() File "/home/mailman//Mailman/MailList.py", line 1322, in Lock self.__lock.lock(timeout) File "/home/mailman//Mailman/LockFile.py", line 266, in lock raise AlreadyLockedError AlreadyLockedError:
After that I continously get errors, so I remove manually every lock and restart the machine. From that point, /bin utilities seem to recognize the config.db file, I am able to list members, to dump the database, and even remove all users with remove_members. But the administrative interface after putting the first screen of membership management (the one with members) is not able to get another page of members.
So, I see the sync_members utility (BUG: the -a is incorrectly listed as --a) so I try to update from the command line, everything seems to work but it stops (I have lost the screen) but I have been able to see that the last address had this form (Which I don't know if is legal)
email@example.com Yes, there is a + before the @.
Could this be the reason of the clash? I did hope so... but after a try I noticed this works...
Should I try to add this users
BTW: in the remove_members it would be nice to add an option (as in sync_members) for not sending messages on unsubscribing.
