I wrote a script called mmfold.py a few years ago which you can get from


I use it to manage admin/moderator requests for 16 python.org mailing lists
by calling it with each list's admin or moderator page in turn:

    function mmcheck {
        for url in \
            http://mail.python.org/mailman/admindb/pydotorg-checkins?admpw=PASS \
            http://mail.python.org/mailman/admindb/chipy-announce?admpw=PASS \
        ; do
            python mmfold.py $url

I get one page for each list which has messages awaiting approval.  That
might not be quite as convenient as simply responding via email in most
cases, but will be much more convenient than wading through Mailman
