[Mailman-Users] checkdbs command question

Does the checkdbs command do ANYTHING other than send out pending 
notifications to the list owners? Would disabling it in cron cripple the 
Mailman software in any way, shape, or form? Comments in the cron file 
suggest that all it does is send out notifications, but there are no 
comments one way or the other within the actual checkdbs file as whether it 
does more than that or not. If that's all it does, we definitely want to 
disable it for the 'special' instance of Mailman we are setting up, but we 
don't want to cripple the software if it does more than just send out 
pending notifications.
