Public bug reported:

This page gives a few methods for using SpamAssassin with mailman: https://wiki.list.org/DOC/4.23%20How%20do%20I%20use%20SpamAssassin%20with%20Mailman%3F
The second methods links to a set of instructions (http://www.jamesh.id.au/articles/mailman-spamassassin/) and then gives some additional steps to take.

There are two different patch files given that you need apply to
SpamAssassin.py to integrate SpamAssassin with mailman, depending on
what version. The second one (just after "And beginning with Mailman
2.1.21, the following patch is required instead of the above.") isn't
complete, there is an old import that needs to be deleted that isn't

Specifically, line 31, `from Mailman.Handlers.Moderate import matches_p`
needs to be deleted.

I just went through the instructions and it took a bit of debugging to find where the error logs were, and what the problem was.
