+?X: This unit offers the user the option of subscribing to the mailing
+?X: list. To force inclusion of this unit, you must add it's name to the
+?X: dependencies on the MAKE line in your private copy of End.U.
+?X: The address of the mailing list server must be set via a "list_request=..."
+?X: entry in the .package file. This is usually done by running packinit and
+?X: answering the proper questions.
+?MAKE:MailList: cat mailer package Myread cf_name cf_email

+?T:list_request list_sub list_unsub list_name
+?X: The cf_name dependency is used through list_sub when the mailing list
+?X: manager happens to be listserv, whereas cf_email is used whith majordomo
+?X: or when the mailing list request address is scanned by a human. Since
+?X: they do not appear within the unit itself, we need a lint hint.

+$cat <<EOM
+There is a mailing list for discussion about $package and related issues.
+This is the preferred place to ask questions about the program and discuss
+modifications and additions with the author and other users. If you are able
+to send mail to the Internet, you are encouraged to subscribe. You need only
+ever subscribe once, and you can unsubscribe automatically at any time in the
+future. If you have already subscribed and you wish to unsubscribe now, you
+may do so by answering "unsubscribe". Answer "subscribe" to subscribe to the
+rp="Subscribe to or unsubscribe from the $list_name mailing list?"
+. ./myread
+case "$ans" in
+[sS]*) $cat <<EOM
+You will be sent a message from the list server to let you know when your
+subscription has been successful and telling you how to submit articles and
+how to unsubscribe again when necessary. You may also unsubscribe by running
+this script again and asking it to do so for you.
