I'm sure I have something around here somewhere... hmm.
Hey, how's about this one?
moderate-lists - moderate some mailing lists from the command-line
moderate-lists [--dir=/dir] [--config=config]
... script outputs message synopsis...
Moderation action [yna] (y=yes, n=no, a=allow address in future)? y
... script mails the correct address appropriately.
Works for ezmlm and MailMan 2.1.x lists, which both produce 'message
awaiting moderation' mails with enough info to allow this to operate.
