For what I saw on /org/lists.debian.org/, the scripts for lists-archives
are simmilar but not compatible, so any change is going to have to be done
on the actual scripts

For what I saw, all the files still belong to maor and they are a lot of
them that are read-only for debwww. So this problem will go away when the
permissions are fixed.

There is no easy way, but most of the perl files have variables for the
configurations, so that should be esay to fix.
