[Mailman-Users] how to disable the password

Just installed mailman, like it very much.
First I tried majordomo and ezmlm(I use qmail btw), but they couldn't
satisfy me. The INSTALL-file explained everything nicely.

BUT, i have a question:
Is there no stripped-down version that does only this:

a read-only announcements-list (to send news every week)
if there is an email send to the list
*there can be the subscribe-command in the subject 
*there can be the unsubscribe-command in the subject 
*the admin has a command to send an email to the subscribed people. (with 
a shell-command or something)
*if there are any reply's, they go to the admin's mailbox
*no digests, maybe an archive would be easy

NO passwords, users who see the list of subscribers etc.

How could i do this

maybe put in my ~qmail-alias/.qmail-announcelist

|grep -i ^Subject: Subscribe|awk '{printf $3}'  > subscriberlist
|grep -i ^Subject: unsubscribe|awk '{printf $3}'|for i in read i;do grep  -v subscriberlist>subscriberlist
|mail announcelist-admin

I know I'm not much of a coder, but i don't have a lot of time to put up
the list, and i don't find some things like how to disable a password.

Or does anybody know a better solution.

thanx very much&keep up the good work
