mailman and sendmail aliases integration


I am fairly new to linux and switched from fedora / sendmail / majordomo to mandrake 10.0 / sendmail / mailman.

I must say that mailman seems a LOT easier to manager and much more user friendly than majordomo.

I've got everything working well, except that I find its a real pain to update the /etc/aliases file manually every time a new list is created

Is there a way to automatically update this? I can't seem to find an answer to this question anywhere else. I see similar posts for mailman and postfix, but I am using and prefer to use sendmail to postfix since I am familar with sendmail already.

Here's what I'm doing right now:
1. cd /usr/lib/mailman
2. bin/genaliases
3. Copy the text manually into: /etc/aliases
4. Run newaliases

This works, but seems to be too painful, there must be an easier way?
