It's not really a script. It's a django project configuration (Which
you'll need to run postorius/hyperkitty)
But it's built so that you can easily choose which components you want
to actually use.
However you may want to deploy Mailman, you'll have to use such a structure.
It's pretty much barebones, with the added complexity resulting from
you to choose to run only one of postorius or hyperkitty..
And I tried to write up everything important in the readme...

It doesn't actually install anything on its own, but instructs on the
different options available...
It also includes nginx and uwsgi config files since I'm using them for

It should work as is for the master branches, but my setups are a little
behind right now...
