"""Create a new, unpopulated mailing list.
Usage: %(PROGRAM)s [options] [listname [listadmin-addr [admin-password]]]
-l language
Make the list's preferred language `language', which must be a two
letter language code.
-u urlhost
Gives the list's web interface host name.
-e emailhost
Gives the list's email domain name.
Normally the administrator is notified by email (after a prompt) that
their list has been created. This option suppresses the prompt and
This option suppresses the prompt prior to administrator notification
but still sends the notification. It can be used to make newlist
totally non-interactive but still send the notification, assuming
listname, listadmin-addr and admin-password are all specified on the
command line.
Print this help text and exit.
You can specify as many of the arguments as you want on the command line:
you will be prompted for the missing ones.
Every Mailman list has two parameters which define the default host name for
outgoing email, and the default URL for all web interfaces. When you
configured Mailman, certain defaults were calculated, but if you are running
multiple virtual Mailman sites, then the defaults may not be appropriate for
the list you are creating.
You also specify the domain to create your new list in by typing the command
like so:
newlist --urlhost=www.mydom.ain mylist
where `www.mydom.ain' should be the base hostname for the URL to this virtual
hosts's lists. E.g. with this setting people will view the general list
overviews at http://www.mydom.ain/mailman/listinfo. Also, www.mydom.ain
should be a key in the VIRTUAL_HOSTS mapping in mm_cfg.py/Defaults.py if
the email hostname to be automatically determined.
If you want the email hostname to be different from the one looked up by the
VIRTUAL_HOSTS or if urlhost is not registered in VIRTUAL_HOSTS, you can specify
`emailhost' like so:
newlist --urlhost=www.mydom.ain --emailhost=mydom.ain mylist
where `mydom.ain' is the mail domain name. If you don't specify emailhost but
urlhost is not in the virtual host list, then mm_cfg.DEFAULT_EMAIL_HOST will
be used for the email interface.
For backward compatibility, you can also specify the domain to create your
new list in by spelling the listname like so:
where www.mydom.ain is used for `urlhost' but it will also be used for
`emailhost' if it is not found in the virtual host table. Note that
'--urlhost' and '--emailhost' have precedence to this notation.
If you spell the list name as just `mylist', then the email hostname will be
taken from DEFAULT_EMAIL_HOST and the url will be taken from DEFAULT_URL_HOST
interpolated into DEFAULT_URL_PATTERN (as defined in your Defaults.py file or
overridden by settings in mm_cfg.py).
Note that listnames are forced to lowercase.
