Thanks for the clarification on who should subscribe to the side list.

As far as my apached not being in the same group as mailman - maybe I'm
misunderstanding, but here's a quote from Step 4 of the install doc.

"You want to be very sure that the user id under which your CGI scripts
run (I took that to mean apached is that wrong?) is *not* in the
'mailman' group you created above, otherwise private archives will be
accessible to anyone."
