Then put @LISTNAME in the site list's accept_these_nonmembers for each
LISTNAME in the installation other than the site list.


cd /path/to/mailman
bin/list_lists --bare |
awk 'BEGIN{print "accept_these_nonmembers = ["}
    !/^SITE_LIST$/{print "@"$1","}
    END{print "]"}' > $f
bin/config_list -i $f SITE_LIST
rm $f

where SITE_LIST is the name of the site list (probably mailman).
