17.5 Lists that allow remote admin, user archive retrieval, but not user-initiated subscription

Create a regular remote admin list, remove DIR/public, and add the -p [public] switch to the ezmlm-get(1) command line in DIR/manager. This overrides the normal DIR/public effect on ezmlm-get(1) and archive retrieval, allowing full archive access to anyone, but rejecting user -help and subscription commands. It is assumed that the users know archive retrieval commands without help. If you want to provide specific help, just link ~/.qmail-listname-help to DIR/help, and invoke a script that copies help info from there. See ezmlm-check(1) for an example.
