Assuming Apache, you may need to add the FollowSymLinks option to the
archives/public/ directory or you may need to add o+x to the
permissions on archives/private/. See the apache error log for
possible additional info.

Without a knowledge of Python and Mailman to create a withlist script,
see 'bin/list_members --help' and 'bin/clone_member --help'.
Basically, you can use bin/list_members to make a list of the members,
edit that to delete all the non xxx at agilent.com addresses then edit
further to create lines like

bin/clone_member -r xxx at agilent.com xxx at avagotech.com

and run that as a shell script.
