[Mailman-Users] Mailman + htDig

Ok.. I think I know what I did.. I didn't restart the qrunner.  As I 
wrote the previous email to you, I realized that I had _thought_ about 
restarting the qrunner, but didn't.  I went through the whole process again:
o Edit mm_cfg.py to set USE_HTDIR=1
o python -c 'from compileall import *; 
o /etc/init.d/mailmanctrl restart
o bin/rmlist test
o bin/newlist test
o bin/arch test
o Entered additional recipients via the web interface.
o Sent a test message to the test list
o /usr/bin/python -S <prefix>/cron/nightly_htdig -v test  (it complained 
about not having the centralized db files, but that seemed ok)
o Pointed my browser at the test archives, and viola!  The search 
ability was there!  And searching worked!

I'm not sure if it was the fact that I recompiled the mm_cfg.py file or 
restarting the qrunner which started things working, though.

Now, I just have to go through and migrate the existing lists. :)  
Hopefully, that won't be too difficult. :)

Thanks for all of your help!
