There is already a Debian package of mailman. If you install the
package it will take care of the dependencies for you. As you can see
from the description below, there are several python packages that
need to be installed before mailman can function.
% dpkg --print-avail mailman
Maintainer: Gergely Madarasz <gorgo at caesar.elte.hu>
Depends: libc6, python-base, python-misc, python-net, mail-transport-agent
Recommends: cron (>= 3.0pl1-42), base-passwd (>= 1.3.0)
Description: Powerful, web based list processor
The GNU Mailing List Manager, which manages email discussion lists
much like Majordomo and Smartmail. Unlike most similar products,
Mailman gives each mailing list a web page, and allows users to
subscribe, unsubscribe, etc. over the web. Even the list manager can
administer his or her list entirely from the web.
Mailman also integrates most things people want to do with mailing
lists, including archiving, mail <-> news gateways, and so on. It
has all of the features you expect from such a product, plus
integrated support for the web (including web based archiving),
automated bounce handling and integrated spam prevention.
