Here's the basic outline:
Extract a list of member email addresses.
/usr/local/mailman/bin/sync_members -g=no -w=no -d=no -a=no -f
The list is set up so confirmation of subscription is required (and we
never confirm when someone tries).
We run this process at the top of every hour. Users
subscribe/unsubscribe through our member services profiler, not through
he list itself.
