Make sure your lyris export script skips over unsubscribed members...
I almost had a fiasco with that ;-)

Here's the script I used to export my lyris lists.  None were using
digests, so I didn't separate the lists.  The import will fail if the
real name contains commas, so just scan for that and fix those up
before importing.  Mailman parses the names and addresses quite well.

--cut here--

use lib '/opt/lyris/apache/lib';
require 'lyrislib.pl';

unless ($ARGV[0]) { die "syntax:\nperl activemembers.pl listname\n"; }

my @Members = &lyris::MemberFromList($ARGV[0]);

foreach (@Members) {
        my %m = &lyris::MemberAttribs($_);
        if ($m{MemberType} eq 'normal') {
                print "$m{FullName} <$m{EmailAddr}>\n";
--cut here--

I'm sure you can test the member record for digest or not and select
each category appropriately.
