[Mailman-Users] control delivery processes

Can anyone please help me to debug the syntax error in mm_cfg.py?

ompi_list = [ 'test-crest', 'osl-test' ]
if listname in ompi_list:
    archive_url = ("http://www.open-mpi.org/community/lists/devel/%s/date.php" % (time.strftime("%Y/%m")))
    DEFAULT_MSG_FOOTER = """_______________________________________________
%(real_name)s mailing list
subscribe: %(web_page_url)slistinfo%(cgiext)s/%(_internal_name)s
searchable archives: %(archive_url)s
"""  % { 'archive_url' : archive_url }

What I wanted here is to apply the new DEFAULT_MSG_FOOTER only for the specific mailing lists.
Is there something wrong here?
