Syncing CiviCRM to Mailman
|Reported by:||https://id.mayfirst.org/takethestreets||Owned by:||https://id.mayfirst.org/jamie|
I'm currently developing a Civi site for a group that's a potential MFPL member. One of the concerns is that they have discussion lists, and our spec calls for using Mailman integration with Civi as per this doc: http://wiki.civicrm.org/confluence/display/CRMDOC41/Mailman+synchronization
Now, the script to pull the data to a CSV can run on the MOSH server, and sync_members is part of the Debian mailman package. However, normal users can't run sync_members since it's on Leslie, and of course one needs to transfer the CSV file from the MOSH server to Leslie.
Would MFPL be open to having a cronjob on Leslie that transfers the CSV via rsync or some other SSH-tunnelled protocol, then runs sync_members on a nightly basis? This would allow members to use their Civi profiles to add/remove themselves from various discussion groups.
