Re: [ba-ohs-talk] Purpling our BA-OHS and BA-UNREV e-mails

If someone can let me know where mhonarc fits into majordomo's
process chain at bootstrap, I can make some progress on this.
There are some race conditions that can be avoided with some
dancing, but how you dance depends on where mhonarc is fit in.    (01)

Of course none of this is worth doing if we aren't able to the
administrators of the bootstrap machines.    (02)

There are two paths. One is the switch to Mailman that Eugene
recommended. This requires a lot of cooperation with the
administrators. The other is to hack at majordomo. This also
requires a fair piece of cooperation but might be possible with
just a change to the aliases file on the mail server.    (03)
