Specify an alternative group for running scripts via the
CGI wrapper. <group-or-groups> can be a list of one or

The proper value for this is dependent on your Web server
configuration, and you must get this right, because the
group id is compiled into the CGI wrapper program for
added security. On system using Apache for example, check
the values for the `Group' option in your httpd.conf file.
You need to figure out what group your web server is running the CGI
scripts under, and then reconfigure, rebuild and reinstall Mailman
