Summary: logrotate config file

Initial Comment:
During the install procedure you could create the 
logrotate script in this way:

IF exists /etc/logrotate.d

    IF NOT exists /etc/logrotate.d/mailman

        Create /etc/logrotate.d/mailman 

    FI

FI


The /etc/logrotate.d/mailman file could be something 
like this:


# Logrotate file for Mailman 2.0.x

$HOME/log/digest {
     monthly
}
$HOME/log/error {
     monthly
}
$HOME/log/post {
     weekly
}
$HOME/log/smtp {
     weekly
}
$HOME/log/subscribe {
     monthly
}
$HOME/log/vette {
     monthly
}



Of course, instead of $HOME you should place the 
installation path of Mailman

Reopening.  Mailman needs to have different log file names in order to
work _properly_ with logrotate.  A proper Logrotate conf file for Mailman
needs a postrotate command in order to restart Mailman after log files have
been rotated.  See FAQ 04.007 for more details

Here is a patch against v2.1.9
