Well, if they have little knowledge of IT, then you should do the
workflow analysis for them. It's not a good idea to just do what
users request, because they don't know what the capabilities are.

That's a different matter. If the only person who really needs the
service is you, then I would think you would prefer a periodic summary
of all lists. I don't think it's possible with the current version of
bin/show_qfiles, but it shouldn't be too hard to improve that script
to gather information from lists/*/pending.pck and sort them by time,
oldest first. Then you know which lists haven't been moderated for
quite a long time, and need attention. Then run that cron job daily
(I would think that's enough for the kind of list you describe).
I'm sorry I don't have the time to do it, though. Maybe somebody
already has such a script?
