[Mailman-Users] No aliases after creating a list

Mailman 2.1.2 adds more aliases and this is what the list creation email
should look like:

The mailing list `test' has been created via the through-the-web
interface.  In order to complete the activation of this mailing list, the
proper /etc/aliases (or equivalent) file must be updated.  The program
`newaliases' may also have to be run.

Here are the entries for the /etc/aliases file:

test:              "|/var/mailman/mail/mailman post test"
test-admin:        "|/var/mailman/mail/mailman admin test"
test-bounces:      "|/var/mailman/mail/mailman bounces test"
test-confirm:      "|/var/mailman/mail/mailman confirm test"
test-join:         "|/var/mailman/mail/mailman join test"
test-leave:        "|/var/mailman/mail/mailman leave test"
test-owner:        "|/var/mailman/mail/mailman owner test"
test-request:      "|/var/mailman/mail/mailman request test"
test-subscribe:    "|/var/mailman/mail/mailman subscribe test"
test-unsubscribe:  "|/var/mailman/mail/mailman unsubscribe test"

Subject: [Mailman-Users] No aliases after creating a list

> Hello,
> Could someone confirm this?  After creating a new list (mailman version
2.1.2) using the Web interface I'm not getting any instructions for adding
the required mail aliases.  None on the "Mailing list creation results"
page, and none in the confirmation mail sent to the owner.
> I had to use what the FAQ says, changing the obsolete parts to use the
mailman command, but is the 4 aliases (i.e test, test-admin, test-owner,
test-request) all you have to set?
> Thanks!
