Summary: true virtual hosting patch for 2.1

Initial Comment:
[copy of the mail sent to -developpers@]

We developped a reliable solution for running lists
with the same name
on different domains on the same Mailman installation.

I implemented that on top of the Mailman 2.1.1-5.1
Debian stable
package.  All that is needed is to patch 2 files
(bin/newlist,
Mailman/MailList.py) in the mailman install, and here
is the patch:

http://bugs.koumbit.net/file_download.php?file_id=3&type=bug

There's only one caveat right now:
Mailman/Cgi/create.py might need to
get patched too, but I haven't got around looking at it
yet, and it
"just works", for now.

I don't know what's the current status of virtual
hosting support on
Mailman, but this patch is a simple hack that should
bring joy in the
homes of all Mailman admins around the world. :)

I got my inspiration and part of the code from:

http://mithrandr.moria.org/blog/139.html

All it does is to add the domain to the internal_name()
of a list. The
real_name is kept as is, and the getListAddress() does
the Right Thing.

This makes Mailman generate aliases like:

list-example.com:             
"|/var/lib/mailman/mail/mailman post list-example.com"

Care will have to be taken on the MTA side to map those
list-example.com
to list at example.com. We are using alternc.org to manage
our server, so
we are using LDAP, so everything went pretty smoothly.
:) But I guess it
will require some magic on the Postfix side or something...

Cheers,

A.

You'll probably have a little trouble finding your way
if you don't
read french though. :) Babelfish might help, haven't tried.

I have ported the patch to 2.1.4, no news on 2.1.5 yet. I
have also put the patch in a seperate CVS server. Fetch all
the goods there:

http://cvs.koumbit.net/cgi-bin/cvsweb/koumbit-maint/patches/mailman-true-virtual-2.1.1.patch
http://cvs.koumbit.net/cgi-bin/cvsweb/koumbit-maint/patches/mailman-true-virtual-2.1.4.patch

I've also updated the 2.1.1 patch to fix the list-id, so I
delete the attachment, fetch the patch straight from our CVS
for the latest fixes.
