[Mailman-Users] Mailman sitepass

The problem could be with Python's crypt module, which depending on
the platform and the way Python was built on it, may not exist or may
be broken.

Note that MM2.1 uses SHA1 for all hashing, as this has proven to be
the most reliable (and the most reliably extant).

My suggestion for you is to set USE_CRYPT=0 in your mm_cfg.py file.
That will force MM2.0.x to use md5 instead of crypt.  However, be
aware that this may break any existing list admin passwords.  Once you
have your site password working, you can use it to go back and reset
all your list admin passwords.
