mailman2lurker - Import mailman lists and their archives into a lurker database.
mailman2lurker -i|-p [options]
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.
-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.
-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 email@example.com. 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.
