for a patch to allow this.

Not directly, but in a shell script you could prepare a file that looks like

mlist.accept_these_nonmembers.append('usera at example.com')
mlist.accept_these_nonmembers.append('userb at example.com')

and so on for all the non-members you want to add and then run

bin/config_list -i filename listname

where filename is the name of the above file.

Alternatively, you could just prepare an input file that looks like

accept_these_nonmembers = [
'usera at example.com',
'userb at example.com',
'userc at example.net',
'userd at example.net',

wherein all the addresses (not just adds) for accept_these_nonmembers
are listed, and then run the same config_list command. See

bin/config_list --help
