Easy to delete a list ... renaming involves a bit more :)

Is pgeu-general on the archives, or excluded?  is it just teh -board 
list that is excluded?

Basically, what I'd propose is:

shutdown mail server during name change
mv (and make a copy of) pgeu-general to pgeu-general (at the file
 	system level)
regenerate alias/virtual table
edit config file and mboxes and change all occurances of pgeu-general
 	to pgeu-general
add pgeu-general to exclusion list
restart mail server

the backup of the original files would be in case I'm wrong about how 
majordomo regenerates its aliases file ... I believe its straight from teh 
file system, but a backup would ensure that I could put it back 
quick/easily if I'm wrong ...

If that sounds good to you, I'll do it late tonight and send a note out 
once completed, which will act as a test at teh same time ...
