I have tried to migrate a medium (795 users) list from majordomo to mailman 
with small success. I have tried:

- from the administrative interface I get an error, this is what I get on 
the log: Note that there is not quota for mailman user

Oct 31 18:13:25 2000 (10519) Failed config.db write, retaining old state.
[Errno 122] Disk quota exceeded
Oct 31 18:13:25 2000 (10519) Delivery exception:
Oct 31 18:13:25 2000 (10519) Traceback (innermost last):
   File "/home/mailman//Mailman/Handlers/HandlerAPI.py", line 82, in 
     func(mlist, msg, msgdata)
   File "/home/mailman//Mailman/Handlers/SMTPDirect.py", line 77, in process
   File "/home/mailman//Mailman/MailList.py", line 1322, in Lock
   File "/home/mailman//Mailman/LockFile.py", line 266, in lock
     raise AlreadyLockedError

After that I continously get errors, so I remove manually every lock and 
restart the machine. From that point, /bin utilities seem to recognize the 
config.db file,  I am able to list members, to dump the database, and even 
remove all users with remove_members. But the administrative interface 
after putting the first screen of membership management (the one with 
members) is not able to get another page of members.

So, I see the sync_members utility (BUG: the -a is incorrectly listed as 
--a) so I try to update from the command line, everything seems to work but 
it stops (I have lost the screen) but I have been able to see that the last 
address had this form (Which I don't know if is legal)

asdvb+ at asdasda.com   Yes, there is a + before the @.

Could this be the reason of the clash? I did hope so... but after a try I 
noticed this works...

Should I try to add this users


BTW: in the remove_members it would be nice to add an option (as in 
sync_members) for not sending messages on unsubscribing.
