I attempted to setup Mailman at first using sym-links in each of the
virtual domains.  I know that was a total failure (it would lose the
domain specific info), and I ended up doing complete installs for each
domain (only six).  It's been awhile now, since I did that (and it was
with version 2.0.13 which had very limited Virtual Domain support).

It *might* be possible to use sym-links now with version 2.1.2.  Keep in
mind though that version 3.x of Mailman *will* have the virtual domain
features that you are looking for.  You might want to put some efforts
into helping Barry and the dev crew along in their efforts to get that
code written and stable.

The FAQ's are user maintained.  Feel free to add to them!

My notes on multiple Virtual Domain installs are in the archives so you
can feel free to borrow from those.
