Hi all,


We just deployed the Mailman for campus E-mail lists service recently and
are having some difficulties updating the 14000 lists on weekly basis.  The
lists data are extracted from Oracle Database and then spooled into two
files for each list, one file is for list members and the other is for the
configuration of list.  We call config_list.py to inject these two files
into Mailman database, Due to the performance of config_list.py, each inject
takes up to 5~10 seconds to complete  a  average list while longer for large
list. Apparently the bottleneck resides in the process when config_list
update the database in Mailman.


 Can someone in this list please advise is there different ways to
speed/tune up the update process?
