DESCRIPTION

schleuder-newlist automates the creation of new Schleuder mailing lists. For more information on Schleuder, please look at schleuder(8).

schleuder-newlist does various input validation, and can generate a key or import one. It will give you as well an easy interface to build new lists in a scripted manner.

It also supports an interactive mode, with which the user will be prompted for missing mandatory options. The interactive mode can be disabled, using the -nointercative flag; it is automatically disabled if the script isn't run within a valid tty.

If no -privatekeyfile, -publickeyfile and -passphrase are provided, the list will create a new keypair with a random password. The type and length of the generated keypair is specified in /etc/schleuder/schleuder.conf.  

OPTIONS

-email list@example.org
Specify the email address of the mailing list.
-realname *'Foo List'*
Specify the name of the mailing list.
-adminaddress listadmin@example.net
Specify the email address of a list administrator. This address will be notified of errors, and depending on configuration may also be allowed to send restricted email commands.
-initmember member1@example.net
Specify the first subscribed list member address. Can be the same as the administrator address. This option must be accompanied by -initmemberkey.
-initmemberkey /path/to/initmember_publickey
Specify the path to first subscribed list member public key. -initmember must also be specified.
-privatekeyfile /path/to/privatekey
Specify the path to a previously-generated private key for the list. This option must be accompanied by -publickeyfile and -passphrase.
-publickeyfile /path/to/publickey
Specify the path to a previously-generated public key for the list. This option must be accompanied by -privatekeyfile and -passphrase.
-passphrase 'key passphrase'
Specify the passphrase needed to access the private key specified in -privatekeyfile. This option must be accompanied by -publickeyfile as well.
-mailuser schleuder
Specify the system user account under which schleuder(8) will be executed. (when run as root, this defaults to "schleuder")
-nointeractive
When specified, no questions will be asked to complete missing information.
 

EXAMPLES

This creates a new list called test1 with the initial member foo@bar.ch. A new keypair will be generated for the list.


        schleuder-newlist test1 -email foobar@example.org \
            -realname "bal jak" \
            -adminaddress admin@example.org \
            -initmember foo@example.com -initmemberkey /tmp/foo.pub

The list test2 will be created, a keypair from the following files with the passphrase test will be imported.


        schleuder-newlist test2 -email test2@example.com \
            -realname "bal jak" \
            -adminaddress foobar@example.org \
            -privatekeyfile ~/tmp/test2.priv \
            -publickeyfile /tmp/test2.pub \
            -passphrase test
