Hi all

I am in the process of moving all out mailing lists to mailman. So far, 
everything went rather smoothly, but there's on last problem I am trying 
to solve: When I create a new mailing list, I have to add the new 
addresses to our mailservers' whitelists. I wrote a script that does 
that, but until now it is run by cron. I could start the script from the 
newlist command, but I don't know whether this command is also used when 
a new list is created using the webinterface (which is more likely).
So, my question is: What is the best way to have a script run, whenever 
a new list is created?
I am using mailman2.1.5 with exim on a Solaris box.
