Is this thing on?

Ok, more on this.

Today I worked again on email. Now the aliases are all setup properly, so
if you have an alias that forward to your email account,
now would be an excellent time to try it. This is what I did :

cd /tiger/home
for f in $(ls */.forward);
   fwd="`cat $f`"
   name=`dirname $f`

   sudo -u postgres psql virtual \
   --command "INSERT INTO email_alias (alias, forward_address) \
              VALUES ('$alias', '$fwd');"

One of the issues is of course that mailing lists are aliases as well.
Right now they are not setup in the database as they should be, but that
will be easy to do, so I will do so tomorrow.

The other thing I did today was set it up so that the old GNU mailman
mailing lists could be easily transferred over. is
that (hackish) parser that I wrote for python pickle files. I basically did
this :

for list in `ls ./`;  do  /usr/lib/mailman/bin/dumpdb $list/config.pck >
/home/drewc/lisp-mlmmj/pickle/${list}.pickle  ;done

Now it is just a simple matter of turning the pickle into the proper
shell/SQL scripts. I was going to do that tonight when I realized that
aliases were not working at all.

So, as of this time tomorrow, all the mail should finally be dealt with.
After I have finished that off, I will move on to whatever pops up as
needed. Any issues at all, and this would be the time to get my ear.
