Notes on upgrading to the current CVS tree of Mailman:

* I ran configure and make as myself, su'ed to mailman, and then ran
  into some trouble on the "make install" because some files aren't

Numerous templates/*.txt files

  But it's much less error-prone to do everything as the mailman user...

* The documentation should mention that you should alias /pipermail/ to 
  <prefix>/public_html/archives/ .

* The mailbox-format archive is stored as a gzip'ped file, but
  referenced in the HTML in uncompressed form.  Why?  Are you expected to 
  configure the Web server to automatically uncompress it?  If so, how do
  you do that?  

* Is there any way to clear out my test e-mails from the archives?
  Since Mailman has just been set up, it would be fine with me if I
  could just blow away public_html/archives; would it be created
