I've got it figured out to have a way for OT: or YAK: to be filtered on
a list that doesn't have any other topics. I set up 2 topics. The first
one filters a simple space.
The above topic is set to checked
The second one filters OT/YAK
The above topic is set to unchecked
Then the option for;
"Do you want to receive messages that do not match any topic filter?"
Is set to "NO"
What happens with the above setup is that everything is sent except OT:
Now, my biggest question is:
How can I set mailman to have the above settings set by DEFAULT for
each user that is subscribing to the list? I found nothing in
mm_cfg.py. I also looked around a bit, but did not find anything that I
could modify for a default setting. If I can set these defaults, then
my mail list subscribers will have little to do to set their topic
Thanks in advance!
