Probably adding more spaces will help as I did not notice that
line telling about show-alias until you mentioned it in this e-mail :-)

IMHO the user should supply only the name of the list and maybe the
real e-mail of the administrator. All the rest should be optional and
either configurable in a file or passable (?) via the command line as
real --gnu like options.

nacho create-list mambo

should be enough but could also give:

nacho create-list mambo --subscribe \

if one wants to avoid people subscribing to mambo.


There's stuff above here
