[Mailman-Users] create a new list (web interface) + qmail aliases

How about using a small script that is kicked off every 5 minutes via a
cron job?

Something like this (that looks at the last time the ~mailman/lists
directory was modified)...

  LDT1=`ls -ld /usr/local/mailman/lists`
  LDT2=`cat /usr/local/mailman/checklist LDT 2>/dev/null`
  if [ "$LDT1" = "$LDT2" ]; then exit 0 ; fi
  # if the listing for the ~mailman/lists directory
  # hasn't changed then no lists have been created or deleted
    insert your script commands here...

Good Luck - Jon Carnes
