At the request of some of my customers, I've recently installed mailman on
BSD 3.1, with Postfix beta-19990317-pl02 as the transport.

Frankly, I'm a little confused with regards to the install instructions.
Was wondering if anyone can provide some elightenment.

I'm getting the following error when trying to create a test list:
sundial:~/bin $ whoami
sundial:~/bin $ ./newlist
Enter the name of the list: test
Enter the email of the person running the list: gme at caffeine.sundial.net
Initial test password: testpassword
Traceback (innermost last):

    raise SystemExit(main(sys.argv))
  File "./newlist", line 91, in main
    newlist.Create(list_name, owner_mail, pw)
