EXAMPLE:
configset GLOBAL access_password_override = 1


The access_password_override setting, if set, allows an administrative
password to override the restrictions in access_rules and related
settings.  Turning this setting off will make administrative passwords
impotent for many Majordomo commands.

When Majordomo checks the access for a request, it follows three steps:

1. Password checks 
2. Access rule checks 
     (Using the access_rules setting)
3. Default rule checks 
     (Using settings like subscribe_policy and get_access)

If access_password_override is set to yes, a request which uses a valid
master password will be completed immediately at the end of step 1;
steps 2 and 3 are never taken.

If access_password_override is set to no, a request which uses a valid
master password will cause the access variable "master_password" to be
set to 1, after which steps 2 and, if needed, 3 will be taken.

The following example shows how this setting might be useful.  Suppose a
list owner would like to send invitations to participate in a mailing
list.  She stores a file called "greetings" in her list's file space
with the "put" command, then writes the following access rule:

subscribe
confirm=greetings
$master_password

This gives the list owner two ways to use the subscribe command with her
master password.  If access_password override is set to yes, new
subscribers will be added immediately.  If access_password_override is
set to no, they will be sent a confirmation notice (the "greetings"
file) instead.

To make this feature more convenient, the "rule" command mode 
can be used to turn off the access_password_override setting
for the duration of one request.  In the example above, the
list owner could use the following command:

  subscribe LISTNAME ADDRESS

to add someone immediately, and this command:

  subscribe-rule LISTNAME ADDRESS

to send the customized confirmation instead.  (Substitute a valid mailing
list name for LISTNAME and the new subscriber's address for ADDRESS.)

This setting has no influence on the accept, reject, sessioninfo,
showtokens, tokeninfo, configdef, configset, and configshow commands,
which do not rely upon the access rules.
