Greetings All,

Like the OP, I was searching for an "unsubscribe without  
confirmation" solution for a single list (out of a dozen or so), when  
I ran across Mark's patch from July of this year. I'm still low on  
mailman's learning curve and python isn't my strong point. So I have  
a quick question.

The environment is Mac OS X 10.4.3 client, Postfix 2.2.5, Mailman 2.1.6

If I interpreted the patch and cmd_unsubscribe.py correctly, this  
patch affects the entire Mailman installation, correct?

Since most of the other lists are used for press releases for our  
clients, I could live with this "feature". I have bounce processing  
set to 1.0 to disable subscriptions quickly for bad addresses.

In short, just a newbie, asking if there is water below before  
jumping off the cliff. <grin>
