Well, the best option is to use the backups that you regularly and
religiously make of all your essential system files.
Failing that, it looks like the Mailman build process leaves a file
cron/crontab.in for you to use. From the INSTALL file:
- IMPERATIVE! IMPORTANT! DO THIS! YOU'LL BE SORRY IF YOU DON'T!
Set up the crontab entries. Mailman runs a number of cron jobs
for its basic functionality. You need to be user `mailman' (or
whatever you specified as --with-ownername) to perform this
step. Add $prefix/cron/crontab.in as a crontab entry by
executing these commands:
% su - mailman
% cd $prefix/cron
% crontab crontab.in
