I'm thinking of changing the name of one of my lists and have read
through the FAQ 4.70
says the basic tasks are:
mv lists/oldlist lists/newlist
mv archives/private/oldlist archives/private/newlist
mv archives/private/oldlist.mbox archives/private/newlist.mbox
as well as rebuilding the archives.
Is there any reason I cannot use cp (copy) or ditto (copy with
identical permissions) instead of mv (move) as a first step, confirm
the 'new' list is working, and then go back and run bin/rmlist? I'm
a bit paranoid about the setup, and would like to be able to make
If so, any opinions on whether to use cp versus ditto?
