?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: dependancies 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.

?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
list.

EOM
rp="Subscribe to or unsubscribe from the $list_name mailing list?"
dflt=neither
. ./myread
case "$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.
