I did some archive browsing today and found lots of differing answers regarding a web interface for creating new lists.

Todd Pfaff gave some good detail about adding an aliases file within the mailman directory long ago 1999/2000

I tried his suggestion.  I have the 3 aliases files created in my mailman directory.  (aliases, aliases.dir, aliases.pag).  I have the ownership & permissions set as he suggested in 


I have a few problems though... when I do the 
./bin/newlist listname owner-email-address password 1 | tail +4 > aliases newaliases

as he suggests, it balks at newaliases.  if I'm running as mailman, it gives a permission denied error.  If I run as root, it balks and gives a 
WARNING: Group writable directory /home/mailman
newaliases: cannot open /home/mailman/aliases: Group writable file

Please help.

I'm trying to set it up so I don't have to add lists for everyone.
