i've tried a whole manner of quotes and escaping out
the spaces. i've tried the following with no luck:
rmlist -a "test list"
rmlist -a 'test list"
rmlist -a test\ list
rmlist -a "test\ list"
rmlist -a 'test\ list'
none have worked.
i'm no python guru but i looked in the source for
rmlist and list looks like all it does is an 'rm -rf'
of /home/mailman/lists/<listname> as well as the
archive directories associated with the list.
i'm now just looking for confirmation if this is safe
for me to do manually.
