There are a couple of ways to do this. The most flexible is probably
the withlist script at
<http://www.msapiro.net/scripts/change_admins.py> (mirrored at
Another way to do it would be a shell script similar to
echo > $f "mlist.owner += ['aditional_owner at example.com']"
for list in `bin/list_lists --bare`; do
bin/config_list -i $f $list
The drawback of this shell script is it doesn't check if
'aditional_owner at example.com' is already an owner, and if it is, the
list will wind up with a duplicate in owner. This is not an issue with
the change_admins.py script as it does check.
