NAME

       mailman2lurker - Import mailman lists and their archives into a lurker
       database.

SYNOPSIS

        mailman2lurker -i-p [options]

DESCRIPTION

       mailman2lurker has mainly two functions. First, it parses mailman’s
       lists and creates a lurker configuration include out of them. Second,
       it imports archives from mailman lists into a lurker database.

       To build a new lurker database from mailmans archives, first run
       ’mailman2lurker -p’. Next you need to add ’include =
       /etc/lurker/lurker.conf.mailman’ into /etc/lurker/lurker.conf.local.
       Finally import mailmans mboxes by running ’mailman2lurker -i’.

       If you want to add new lists to an already existing lurker
       configuration, run ’mailman2lurker -p -w newlists’ and afterwards
       ’mailman2lurker -i -f newlists’. This will import only the mbox files
       of mailman lists that have been added to the lurker configuration
       because they were new to lurker.

COMMANDS

       -p, --parse
           Parse mailman lists, and create a lurker configuration include file
           containing all parsed lists. Lists that are already configured in
           lurker are ignored.

       -i, --import
           Import archives of all lists. This parses the lurker configuration
           and imports the mailman mbox at
           /var/lib/mailman/archives/private/<list>.mbox/<list>.mbox for every
           list.

OPTIONS

           -c, --config <config>
               Use <config> as lurker configuration file. Default:
               /etc/lurker/lurker.conf

           -o, --outfile <outfile>
               Write list configuration to <outfile>. If this is not
               specified, <lurker.conf>.mailman will be used.  This option is
               only useful in conjunction with -p.

           -g, --group <group>
               Use <group> for new lists. Default is ’undef’.  This option is
               only useful in conjunction with -p.

           -a, --listhost <listhost>
               Use <listhost> as host for new list addresses. If a new list is
               called ’mylist’ and <listhost> is lists.org, then the list
               address will be mylist@lists.org. Default is ’example.org’.
               This option is only useful in conjunction with -p.

           -l, --link <url link>
               Use <url link> as base for links of new lists. If a list is
               called ’mylist’, and <url link> is ’http://lists.org’, then the
               link address will be http://lists.org/mylist. Default is
               ’http://example.org’.  This option is only useful in
               conjunction with -p.

           -s, --lang <language>
               Use <language> as language for new lists. Needs to be a
               language token.  Default is ’en’. This option is only useful in
               conjunction with -p.

           -w, --write-lists <file>
               Write a list of all lists that have been added to the lurker
               configuration.  Safe that list in <file>. Default is off.  This
               option is only useful in conjunction with -p.

           -x, --list-cmd <file>
               Use <commandfile> to get the list of mailman lists that should
               be parsed.  When <commandfile> is a command, it needs to end
               with ’ │’.  Default is ’/var/lib/mailman/bin/list_lists │’.
               This option is only useful in conjunction with -p.

           -f, --listfile <file>
               Import only lists that are listed in <file>.  This option is
               only useful in conjunction with -i.

           -d, --lists <one[,two,...]>
               Import only lists that are given as argument.  This option is
               only useful in conjunction with -i.

           -h, --help
               Display a help message.

           -v, --version
               Display mailman2lurker’s version number.
