	There are a variety of log processing programs, depending on your 
MTA, etc....  If you use postfix, check out pflogsumm (see 
<http://jimsun.linxnet.com/postfix_contrib.html>).  I've got some old 
scripts for doing similar things for sendmail syslog data (see 
<http://www.shub-internet.org/brad/sendmail/index.html>).  For most 
any MTA, you should also check out lire (see logreport.org).

	However, I'm not aware of anyone who has developed such tools 
that are specifically oriented towards mailing lists.
