I am sorry that I couldn't find any hint on it in my directory tree. But fortunately enough in the recent days, a new implementation was distributed in alt.sources. The introduction I include below. I hope it is of interest. If you don't have access to alt.sources you may contact me to get the file. It is a three part posting.

It is automated, and obliterates the need for user intervention and maintenance of multiple aliases of the form "list, list-owner, list-request", etc. There is support provided for public and private hierarchical archives, moderated lists, peer lists, peer servers, private lists, address aliasing, news connections and gateways, mail queueing, list ownership, owner preferences, crash recovery, and batch processing. It has been ported to all major platforms. The system is also available via anonymous ftp from in the directory pub/listserv, and this is the place where fixes, if any, are made available. The list served by has been set up to discuss issues about this system. Enjoy!
