[Mailman-Developers] ABEND: problem with sync_members command

Ok, I have found the problem. The check routines that validate an e-mail address does not pick up addresses with spaces in them. Thus, the following will cause an ABEND:

richarde. test@eskom.co.za 

Easy to reproduce. It must be in the code that checks e-mail addresses against a regular expression.

Well, I doubt that it will be fixed as I submitted a patch against sync_members to allow getting input from stdio as stated in the help for the command. Nothing as yet.

Is anything happening with mailman development?

I don't know, but last week I created a new list and freshly inserted over
3000 addresses into it with no problems.
