Since I upgraded from 1.1something to 2.0beta5 (Using the Debian
packages in the unstable dist):

Oct 31 09:47:04 2000 (23491) Delivery exception: [Errno 13] Permission denied: '/var/lib/mailman/archives/private/nsw-consent.mbox/nsw-consent.mbox'
Oct 31 09:47:04 2000 (23491) Traceback (innermost last):

  File "/usr/lib/mailman/Mailman/Handlers/ToArchive.py", line 31, in process
    mlist.ArchiveMail(msg, msgdata)
  File "/usr/lib/mailman/Mailman/Archiver/Archiver.py", line 197, in ArchiveMail    self.__archive_to_mbox(msg)
  File "/usr/lib/mailman/Mailman/Archiver/Archiver.py", line 163, in __archive_to_mbox
    mbox = self.__archive_file(afn)
  File "/usr/lib/mailman/Mailman/Archiver/Archiver.py", line 149, in __archive_file return Mailbox.Mailbox(open_ex(afn, "a+"))
  File "/usr/lib/mailman/Mailman/Utils.py", line 578, in open_ex
    fd = os.open(filename, flags, perms)
IOError: [Errno 13] Permission denied: '/var/lib/mailman/archives/private/nsw-consent.mbox/nsw-consent.mbox'

check_perms reports nothing about the archives, they are set to
root-only write though:

[root at dora] ~# ls -l /var/lib/mailman/archives/private/nsw-consent.mbox/nsw-consent.mbox
   0 -rw-r--r--   1 root     list            0 May  3  2000 /var/lib/mailman/archives/private/nsw-consent.mbox/nsw-consent.mbox

Should I try setting them to 0664 instead of 0644?
