sympa_wizard.pl appeared on Sympa 3.3.4b.9. It was originally written by:

Serge Aumont <sa@cru.fr>

Olivier Salaün <os@cru.fr>

--batch and --display options are added on Sympa 6.1.25 and 6.2.15.

On Sympa 6.2.70, the most of functions provided by this program was reorganized and was integrated into sympa config command line, therefore sympa_wizard.pl was deprecated.
