       schleuder-newlist  automates  the  creation  of  new  Schleuder mailing
       lists.  For more information on Schleuder, please look at schleuder(8).

       schleuder-newlist does various input validation, and can generate a key
       or import one.  It will give you as well an easy interface to build new
       lists in a scripted manner.

       It  also  supports  an  interactive  mode,  with which the user will be
       prompted for missing mandatory options.  The interactive  mode  can  be
       disabled,  using  the -nointercative flag; it is automatically disabled
       if the script isn’t run within a valid tty.

       If no -privatekeyfile, -publickeyfile and -passphrase are provided, the
       list  will  create  a new keypair with a random password.  The type and
       length    of    the    generated    keypair     is     specified     in
