This is a shortened version of what I had working for my first draft of
the mail archive for the lists, before I switched to pulling the entries
from the news server.
You will need to define $PATH as the path to your maildir directories.
The script will create the directory for each list as "docs", "bugs", etc.
If you want different names, there's a trick to automatically reassign
the names that I can dig up.
To be safe, stick some mail messages into individual files and give this a
manual test from the command line.
* MATCH ?? ()\/[^@]+
# find what list this is going to
# create destination dir if needed
* $ ! ? test -d $PATH/$LISTNAME
| mkdir $PATH/$LISTNAME
# archive in appropriate mbox file
