"""Accept posts to a list and handle them properly.

The main advertised address for a list should be filtered to this program,
through the mail wrapper.  E.g. for list `', the `test'
alias would deliver to this script.

Stdin is the mail message, and argv[1] is the name of the target mailing list.


import sys

import paths
from Mailman import mm_cfg
from Mailman import Utils
from Mailman.i18n import _
from Mailman.Queue.sbcache import get_switchboard
from Mailman.Logging.Utils import LogStdErr

LogStdErr("error", "post")

def main():
    # TBD: If you've configured your list or aliases so poorly as to get
    # either of these first two errors, there's little that can be done to
    # save your messages.  They will be lost.  Minimal testing of new lists
    # should avoid either of these problems.
        listname = sys.argv[1]
    except IndexError:
        print >> sys.stderr, _('post script got no listname.')
    # Make sure the list exists
    if not Utils.list_exists(listname):
        print >> sys.stderr, _('post script, list not found: %(listname)s')
    # Immediately queue the message for the incoming qrunner to process.  The
    # advantage to this approach is that messages should never get lost --
    # some MTAs have a hard limit to the time a filter prog can run.  Postfix
    # is a good example; if the limit is hit, the proc is SIGKILL'd giving us
    # no chance to save the message.
