[Mailman-Users] list emails aren't being sent (me, too) FIXED?

It wasn't immediately obvious to me that the crontab in question needed to 
be installed under the "mailman" ID.

On FreeBSD, they have individual crontab entries, but also /etc/crontab -- 
where most of my stuff goes.

I've put this into mailman's crontab, and manually ran the qrunner, and the 
messages got delivered and the archive was visible.  That seems to fix it 
major issue in question.

Note that confirmations of posts were not sent out -- and I've subsequently 
tried this since then, and the post gets processed, and I did configure it 
to send a confirmation back to the poster.

Yeah, the crontab was a flagrant oversight -- but maybe the docs could 
emphasize this a bit, for those that might run into this.

Thanks for everyone's help.
