[Mailman-Users] Setting up read-only list

I think I might just use a Perl script, a text file of emails and a cron job
for this rather than Mailman....  If you're just going to send an email out
once a day seems like Mailman's a bit on the "big" side....The Perl script
could even generate an archive of old emails fairly easily.
