Usually 0664 for the files in $prefix/logs but the best way to get this 
right is by running '$prefix/bin/check_perms -f' as either root or the 
mailman user. This makes sure the setgid bit on directories are also 
correct. I usually stop mailmanctl and the local MTA while check_perms is 
doing its fix thing.
