[Mailman-Users] Resetting bounce scores globally

Is there a way to scan my 440 lists and look for lists with no subscribers?  it seems my localhost ipv6 problem has caused at least one list to be emptied of all subscribers by the bounce processing.....so I have had to re-populate it.

After that is there a way to extract all the subscribers off the old lists server and inject them back into the new lists on the new lists server?

Did you first download and install per its docstring

If not, do so. If so, what specifically was the result from

  withlist -a -r reset_bounce
