Hm.. what exactly does the fix_url script do? Changing the URLs on the
interface as I want?
Am I right that setting the DEFAULT_URL_PATTERN to something like "
http://localhost:8080/mailman" will work for me, as long people always
forward port 8080?
Yes, router level would be nicer, but it should work from any computer
and any network - as long as you have ssh access.
