	I just installed from a 2.0 beta RPM I found.  It was completely
painless.  There was a /usr/doc/README.rpm that told me exactly what to
do.  Excellent work!  Thank you!

	The only problem I had is that some of the icons didn't get copied
to $DOCUMENT_ROOT/icons and showed up as broken images.  That's probably a
problem with the RPM, not with MailMan.

	This was such a welcome relief from managing a Majordomo list.
Phew!  The cut'n'paste of the aliases info is genius.  It would be nice if
that was written to a file (i.e., listname.aliases) in the current
directory.  That way I could 

cat listname.aliases >> /etc/aliases ; newaliases

	and not have to cut'n'paste at all.

	I totally dig the USENET gateway functionality.  Right on!  I hope
it works as advertised.

	Finally, I would really like to see an option for "No password".
I'm using MailMan in an intranet, where list security is not an issue. The
intranet is used by marketing shitheads too stupid to remember or use a
password. I would like to be able to turn it off.

	The other thing is subscription policy.  Again, I would like to
have no confirmation at all as an option.  I am perfectly aware that a
"confirm" (or better) policy is a good idea, but I would like to have the
choice of subscribing people without their knowledge or interaction.

	Just my $.02.  Thanks again!
