For those playing along at home:
Reset a list's web_page_url attribute to the default setting.
This script is intended to be run as a bin/withlist script, i.e.
% bin/withlist -l -r fix_url listname [options]
Look up urlhost in the virtual host table and set the web_page_url and
host_name attributes of the list to the values found. This
essentially moves the list from one virtual domain to another.
Without this option, the default web_page_url and host_name values are
-v / --verbose
Print what the script is doing.
If run standalone, it prints this help text and exits.
'withlist' ($MAILMAN_HOME/bin/withlist) is a 'General framework for
interacting with a mailing list object.' It uses Python's interpreter
to modify Mailman binary objects, either interactively or (as Michael
did here) programmatically.
'-l' = lock the mailing list before futzing with it. (Good idea.)
'-r' = run the Python script named next on this command line, in this
case fix_url.py. (It includes an instruction to unlock the mailing
list at the end.)
My instance of withlist doesn't include a '-u' option. With it, you
just specify the mailing list as ending parameter.
(Examples are interactive Python, not scripted.)
