Re: .listadmin.ini and Mailman 2.1.14 (fwd)

... what does "having trouble" mean? No error message, no symptoms,
no problem?

Why? Which line?

Looks ok to me. And the semantics too.
http://mailman.efn.no/mailman/admin/datahistorie asks me for a password.

My car won't start. Can you tell me how to fix it please?

The good news:
listadmin is just a perl script. Do what you like with it.
Trace it with extra print statements.

The bad news:
22096 Oct  7  2007 listadmin-2.40.tar.gz (author's tarball)
 1858 Apr  9  2010 changelog.Debian.gz (jessie's deb)

So listadmin is way behind.
(So is mailman 2.1.14 for that matter: pre-wheezy. As for 2.1.9,
etch vintage. But I suppose you have no control over that.)
