Configuration of the cscf-urgent Mailing List

The cscf-urgent mailing list is implemented by an email alias in the cscf-specific package:

cscf-urgent: cscf-urgent@lists.uwaterloo.ca
The configuration of that list is mostly obvious. However these options are worth noting:

General Options
Where are replies to list messages directed?
This list

Privacy Options
Subscription rules
What steps are required for subscription?
Require Approval

Who can view subscription list?
Anyone

Sender filters
By default, should new list member postings be moderated?
No

List of non-member addresses whose postings should be automatically accepted.
^.*[.]uwaterloo[.]ca$

Text to include in any rejection notice to be sent to non-members who post to this list. This notice can include the list's owner address by %(listowner)s and replaces the internally crafted default message.
This list is intended to accept urgent CSCF after hours problem reports. It requires that the reports appear to come from a "uwaterloo.ca" mail address. So if you're reporting from off-campus, you'll need to configure your mail client to use a "uwaterloo.ca" address.

Note that anyone's mail will be accepted, however non-UW mail will be held for moderation, which causes mail to be sent to the list administrators, which is currently management (although it needn't be).

List maintenance is typically done by management, however the administrator password for the list is available to any CSCF staff that need it.
