hmmm, I use the h.close() a bit after (I catche its latest ID so that I ca build the direct URL for my indexer). But for now, I guess I'm done.
I've opened a bug (didn't figure where I could put my stuff) on launchpad: https://bugs.launchpad.net/mailman/+bug/531942
It contains my scripts, and some informations on how to use them.
Indeed, "arch" script uses locks. I copied it, removed the lock stuff, and used this version. All work fine now.
I'm happy I could understand a bit (well... very little bit) how mailman works.
Thanks again !
