I did run it but I get

List name is required
--- digest members in general.test ---
List all the members of a mailing list.

Usage: bin/list_members [options] listname


     --output file
     -o file
         Write output to specified file instead of standard out.


Should I change:
for list in `bin/list_lists --bare` ; do


for list in `bin/list_lists --LIST_NAME` ; do

Or how do I supply the list of lists?

Many thanks!
