Summary: Daily mbox files for list mbox archives

Initial Comment:
The daily mbox patch changes the way Mailman does its archive-to-mbox 
archiving, if that is enabled.

The standard Mailman system single .mbox file per list used for mbox 
archiving can, over time, become very unwieldy, presenting problems for 
disk space management.

The mailman daily mbox patch modifies Mailman's behaviour so that a 
sparse series of daily mbox files is used for archiving rather than a single 
mbox file. Each archived message is normally appended to a daily mbox 
file for the UTC date when the message is first archived.

For more information, download the patch and check out the file 
README.dailymbox or visit the URL http://www.openinfo.co.uk/mm/
patches/dailymbox/

Apply the patch from within the Mailman build directory using the 
command: 

    patch -p1 < path-to-patch-file

Working very well on a production system.  Nice addition to
Mailman, makes file management and backups MUCH easier.

Thanks!!
