Thanks for answering all this while I was asleep at the wheel :-)

The  quick version  is that  the script  I wrote  for mailman  2.1 has  been
slightly updated for  the new code, and  contains a few more  things to make
grsecurity happy too.
(the  code   in  mailman  2.0   only  deals  with  restricted   symlinks  in
secure-linux, which is a simpler patch for linux 2.2 kernels).

If you are interested in grsecurity for 2.4 linux kernels, see
