[Mailman-Developers] Determining if a user or list has moderation

You are calling the 'withlist' command wrong.
You havent specified what you put into the checkModerated.py script, but
thats kinda by the by, since
from "withlist -h":
This can be used to run a script with the opened MailList object.
This works by attempting to import `module' (which must be in the
directory containing withlist, or already be accessible on your
sys.path), and then calling `callable' from the module. callable can
be a class or function; it is called with the MailList object as the
first argument. If additional args are given on the command line,
they are passed as subsequent positional args to the callable.
Note that `module.' is optional; if it is omitted then a module with
the name `callable' will be imported.
The global variable `r' will be set to the results of this call.
if you use "-r" you need to call a function, not give it a script name
(hence the error .. no ".py" attribute)
keep reading down that help screen, and ..
As another example, say you wanted to change the password for a particular
user on a particular list. You could put the following function in a file
from Mailman.Errors import NotAMemberError
def changepw(mlist, addr, newpasswd):
print 'No address matched:', addr
and run this from the command line:
% bin/withlist -l -r changepw mylist somebody at somewhere.org foobar
hope that helps ;)
