- From Majordomo help text (you can get it by sending 'help' to
It understands the following commands:
get <list> <filename>
Get a file related to <list>.

index <list>
Return an index of files you can "get" for <list>.

So one can send 'index linux-kernel' to to
see what's there. Later you can use get commands to retrive those
files. But remember, you must have subscribed to the list to get
files or index.

Some days ago I've managed to get an index by switching temporarily to
a list by

subscribe linux-kernel-digest
index linux-kernel-digest
unsubscribe linux-kernel-digest

and later

subscribe linux-kernel-digest
get linux-kernel-digest some-file-name
get linux-kernel-digest another-file-name
unsubscribe linux-kernel-digest

That worked!
