To run this script the majordomo has to be setup on the same machine
that is running mailman? When I tried to run this script on different
machine that is running mailman it's looking for majordomo config
location, error below. I just copied the majordomo mailing list over to
machine and run the script:
[root at app-0-0 contrib]# ./majordomo2mailman.pl

To enable this to work, I found out that you need to have an existing
mailman mailing list if not it can't find the "mylist":
[root at birn-app-0-0 mailman]# ./bin/arch --wipe
No such list "bcc-portal-dev.archive.mbox"
