I use 

     ./remove_members --all --nouserack --noadminack $destfile
     ./add_members -w n -r $destdir/$destfile

because I did not know about sync_members when I wrote my script.  The
posting in the archives I was reviewing did not mention sync_members.

I have a complication, with which I have to contend - besides the
dynamic list XXX built from the HR Database, I can have a static file
XXXstatic, which contains other subscribers that are not in the HR
Database.  My script processes this XXXstatic file when it processes
the XXX file.  To use sync_members I will have to combine the XXX and
XXXstatic files, and then use the combined file with sync_members.
