Some clarifications to my earlier blurb:
- I had some archives, but after running 'make update' a few times,
they are gone. Instead I have symlinks (list, list.mbox - yes both are symlinks) in the archives directory pointing to public_html/archives/*. But public_html/archives does not exist.
This was partly incorrect and I did find the archives from $prefix/archives/private.
Further, apparently new messages do not get archived now, at least I can't find them anywhere. Should the mailboxes reside in the $prefix/archives directory?
Actually they do get archived, no problem here.
It seems that I should have mailed to the mailman-users list first or checked things more carefully. Sorry...
