I recently installed a Debian Woody Linux system.  I requested the Mailman
package from debian and it installed 2.0.11.  This is a binary.  I didn't
compile it.  I read the post install instructions to make sure that the
permissions were correct.  I then tried to make my list.  Here is the script

and compile it myself?  If so, what release do I use?  Here is the script
