Hoping to find the "address@concealed" that posted this bug on the
Sympa bugtrack system -- I tried sending to that address directly and got
"no such address". Or anyone else who's interested in creating true
virtual naming for lists in virtual domains....

I'm dying to see some progress on this, as someone trying to do ASP
list hosting with Sympa. I would have fixed it myself by now if I knew
a damn thing about SQL. It's the one real flaw in Sympa, as far as I'm
concerned, but it seems the CRU team can't prioritize it. So it's up to us!

Do you have a workable fix? Do you want help testing it out or propagating
it out to other changes that are surely necessary in the main Perl code for
handling and checking list names? I barely knew Perl before, but am learning
it now through working with Sympa and can probably help there. And I'm sure
we could work it back into the Sympa tree if it's done right.

Let me know where you're at.
