I'm confused by this. When I run bin/genaliases, it shows all of the
aliases (which I can redirect to a file), but it doesn't automatically
create or update any files in /usr/local/mailman/data/

My system is working fine (I currently just added the aliases to
sendmail's /etc/aliases file), but I'm wondering if something is wrong
or if I am just misunderstanding something. I have RedHat 7.3,
Sendmail, and Mailman 2.1 installed from source.

Also a previous message mentioned that this information was in the
INSTALL file, but I didn't see anything there.
