I run a bunch of lists and have set up a special 'all_subscribers' list
that I maintain with a cron job that runs every night. The cron job
runs the following script:
the file list_of_all_lists contains the names of all the lists I want to
include with this 'all_subscribers' list.
for i in $(cat list_of_all_lists)
/usr/share/mailman/bin/list_members -f --nomail=enabled $i >> /tmp/all_subs
cat /tmp/all_subs|sort -u > /tmp/all_subs.sorted
/usr/share/mailman/bin/sync_members -f /tmp/all_subs.sorted all_subscribers > /dev/null
rm /tmp/all_subs /tmp/all_subs.sorted
Sending to this list causes the post to go to each subscriber of any list just once.
I have another list that combines a subset of the lists similarly.
