It's a commercial tool ($1500/CPU, roughly) for gui access to 
administration of things. Basically seems designed for the colo/hosting 
market. One of the tools they've built a widget for is Mailman. That 
widget seems broken on at least one site.

I think, given it's a commercial product, that we don't have much 
responsibility ot make sure cpanel works, not unless they pay for us to 
support it. They've taken Mailman, attached their system to manage it, 
and so it's up to cpanel to make sure cpanel works.

so am I. Not sure who might have said that. I think the appropriate 
response is really "we have no relationship with cPanel, and so it's up 
to cpanel to make sure the product it sells works, and the Mailman team 
has never been involved with cpanel in any way"

I've seen people asking about it on ListOwners. I've kept my head down 
because I didn't know what you'd said/done, but it sort of sounds like 
it's either the cPanel folks trying to blame Mailman for its own 
problems, or an ISP trying to blame cPanel and/or mailman. I know we've 
never explicitly supported cPanel in the mailman projects. it seems 
like cPanel is the crew to bring this up with, not us.
