How trivial is it to swap from majordomo/sendmail to
The sendmail->qmail conversion can be quite painful because qmail does
things, well, differently.
Once you've done that, majordomo won't work because it's not compatible
with qmail, luckily the next bit is much easier:
install ezmlm then for each list, ezmlm-make it, then use a little bash
script to ezmlm-sub each address in the old majordomo list to the new
one. About 30min work including testing.
The hard bit is teaching all the users to use the new interface.
I ask not because I want to do it but because people
suggested that in the past for the ADSL mailing list and I've always
refused because of the time required to make the changes.
Yes, it gets considerably worse once you have things like web-based
archives, and scripts that automatically generate lists, and list admins
who have no local access to the list server, etc. Hence no plans to
switch from majordomo here in a hurry. :P
(though I'll see what I can do about the MTA performance issues...)
