I'm running debian woody, postfix, and mailman.
I just upgraded from 2.0.x to 2.1.3-1.
Mailman is now telling me it needs a sitelist before it will
start. I can't find much about sitelist, other than the mentions of
it in the mailman 2.1.2 release notes and an occasional reference to
reconfiguring all of the mailing lists using config_list. The
python.org mailman faq gives me no hits on "sitelist".
It appears that all I have to do is:
1) Create a vanilla mailing list named "mailman":
do: newlist mailman
paste the aliases into /etc/aliases
2) do: config_list -i /var/lib/mailman/data/sitelist.cfg mailman
3) restart mailman; on debian, do so with:
do: /etc/init.d/mailman restart
Now, this *appears* to have fixed things, mail to the various
lists is going out, the various message waiting in the queue went, as
did the test I just sent. But is it really fixed, or do I need to do
