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 <command|file> to get the list of mailman lists that should be parsed.  When
           <command|file> 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.
