That's called an umbrella list, and it's only half-way supported. Look
up Umbrella lists in the FAQ.
By-the-way, I use a script to create/update various List-of-lists. I
dump each list out into one big text file (just the email addresses
please!), then I use ~mailman/bin/sync_members to create or update the
list of users for the *uber* list. Works a treat, and can't be beat!
Good Luck - Jon Carnes
