Problem was I building mailman not in the source dir!

Now I have mailman setup on my Box... :-)

1. What should I do next?
2. Should I start mailmanctl?
3. How should I make lists?
4. What's gonna be my mailing adress to mailman like we have
"mailman-users at python.org"

I commented imports to japanese, korean and korean.aliases

# In a normal interactive Python environment, the japanese.pth and
# files would be imported automatically.  But because we inhibit the
# of the site module, we need to be explicit about importing these codecs.
#import japanese
# As of KoreanCodecs 2.0.5, you had to do the second import to get the
# codecs installed, however leave the first import in there in case an
# changes this.
#import korean
#import korean.aliases

But now I get :-
Compiling /opt/neo/local/mailman-2.1.2/Mailman/versions.py
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "bin/update", line 46, in ?

ah , it's a Friday-the-thirteenth problem :-) ... I think so too!

Anyway, I used --perfix to configure Python whereas I used --with-username,
--with-groupname, --prefix,  --with-var-prefix and --with-python for mailman

Maybe use configure option --with-python /path/to/your/python

Also -- after building the python, did you rehash or open a new shell?
Maybe configure wasn't finding the python for that reason.

 Or maybe it's a Friday-the-thirteenth problem :-)

Any two people may be talking to each other, at any moment, in a civilized
about something trivial, or even something complex and delicate.  And inside
each of the two there runs a kind of dark river of unconnected thought, of
secret fear, or violence, or bliss -- hoped-for or lost -- which keeps pace
with the flow of talk and is mostly neither seen nor heard.  And then at
one or both of the two will catch sight or sound of this movement, in
or herself, or, more rarely, in the other.  And it is like the quick slip of
waterfall into a pool, like a drop into darkness.  The pace changes, the
weight of the air, though the talk may run smoothly onward without a ripple
quiver.        -- A. S. Byatt, "The Chinese Lobster"
