I don't know why this is a reply to my reply in the "Resetting bounce
scores globally" thread, and did you resolve that?
Anyway, there are various ways you could accomplish this. You could
create a shell script along the lines of
for list in `bin/list_lists --bare`
do if ! (bin/list_members $list | grep @ > /dev/null); then
echo $list: no members
Or you could create a withlist script like
if len(mlist.getMembers()) == 0:
print "%s has no members" % mlist.real_name
save it as bin/find_empty.py and run
bin/withlist -a -r find_empty
>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?
Why not just copy the lists/LISTNAME/config.pck from the old server to
the new. Or if for some reason you don't want to do that, you could
copy it to lists/dummy_list/config.pck on the new server and then run
with the desired list_members options.
