Thank you very much, Mark. It works well.


But there is one more thing, when I tried to enter one of the list admin
page and right after I key in admin password and click "Let me In",
there will be error;


Bug in Mailman Version 2.1.5

We're sorry, we hit a bug!


Please inform the webmaster for this site of the problem. Printing of
traceback and other system information has been explicitly inhibited,
but the webmaster can find this information in the Mailman error logs.


This happen after the domain migration from "mys.agilent.com" to

Any idea on how to solve it?


Thanks again.

It's all three. The source module is the .py file. The .pyc and .pyo

are compiled and optimized compiled files respectively. Python manages

these transparently, recompiling if necessary if the source is newer.

In your case, the exact command is


withlist -l -r fix_url dragonite


i.e., just the list's name, not the path or the config.pick.


Note that if you just run 'fix_url.py' it will give some detail about

its usage.

This error is because the command you gave was


withlist -l -r fix_url.py ...


rather than


withlist -l -r fix_url ...


Run 'bin/fix_url.py' and 'bin/withlist --help' for more details.
