[Mailman-Developers] Mailman 3 Error & some questions

I am planning to migrate from mailman 2.1.14 to mailman 3. At the moment

mailman 3 is running on a new CentOS 7 server with postfix as MTA. But I

have some questions and problems:


1. I have an error with hyperkitty


ERROR 2015-07-29 08:11:02,287 update_index 7216 140406344681280 Failed to

update the fulltext index: 'Command' object has no attribute 'commit'

Traceback (most recent call last):



s/update_index.py", line 58, in execute




rch_indexes.py", line 73, in update_index

    update_cmd.update_backend("hyperkitty", "default")



management/commands/update_index.py", line 233, in update_backend

    do_update(backend, index, qs, start, end, total,

verbosity=self.verbosity, commit=self.commit)

AttributeError: 'Command' object has no attribute 'commit'


As far as I can tell, there is an error with the haystack indexing of

archived mails. But how to fix this? I'm clueless.


2. In mailman 2, I've created a list and added a new owner. Then the owner

get an email, with his password and a link to the admin page of the list.

How does this work in mailman3? If I create an list in mailman3 and set the

owner, then the email address is the owner, but he isn't noticed. So what

steps are needed to get an password for the new owner and admin of the list?


3. Is it possible to get Shibboleth ( <https://www.shibboleth.net>
https://www.shibboleth.net) working

with mailman3?


4. The link in the welcome mail to the info page of the list is wrong. It

says    <http://lists.example.com/listinfo/list@lists.example.com>
http://lists.example.com/listinfo/list@lists.example.com and if I

visit this link, I get an 404 error. (example.com is here a real domain).

The Second link says  <http://example.com/me@host.com>
http://example.com/me@host.com where the example.com

part seems to be hardcoded.


Thank you for your help and I hope my English is not too bad (I'm just a

German IT Administrator...)


Greetings from Germany
