I don't believe it's a user-education-oriented problem; I want my users to
Mailman has the capability via ("Avoid duplicate copies of messages?") to
determine when email is being sent to an external user that's on its
subscription list; why not use the same/similar mechanism to check the
duplications on other subscription lists?
This leads me to believe that this capability is well within the capability
of Mailman to support. Alas, I don't have intimate knowledge of the
internals, and therefore I speak from a very ignorant position.
Also, if the Mailman development community does not want to support this
feature based upon some policy or principal, I suppose there's little that
can be done. FWIW, I think this would be a useful feature for Mailman, but
that's just my perspective.
