The ownership issue is a red-herring. As long as it's group owned by
mailman and it's g+rw you should be fine.
I'm guessing somewhere along the way Python got upgraded and the
status of the crypt libraries changed (either they were there before
and not now, or vice versa). Try setting USE_CRYPT=0 in your
A better solution would be to upgrade to MM2.1. It uses sha1 hashing,
which will always be available.
BTW, a debugging tool I use quite often (or the Python literate here),
is to sprinkle the code with lines like:
syslog('debug', 'some value: %s', somevalue)
which puts the output in errors/debug. You may need to add
from Mailman.Logging.Syslog import syslog
at the top of the file, if it isn't already there.
