Hi there,
 i setup a mailman-site and it seems to run quite smoothly.
BUT: the integration with my webserver seems to be faulty.
whenever i use the administrative web frontend, the owner
of the list *.pck files is changed to the user 'apache' (the one
my web server runs with). this leads to the cron-job gate_news
failing and complaining :

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/local/mailman/cron/gate_news", line 284, in ?
  File "/usr/local/mailman/cron/gate_news", line 264, in main
  File "/usr/local/mailman/cron/gate_news", line 199, in process_lists
    mlist = MailList.MailList(listname, lock=0)
  File "/usr/local/mailman/Mailman/MailList.py", line 128, in __init__
  File "/usr/local/mailman/Mailman/MailList.py", line 594, in Load
    dict, e = self.__load(file)
  File "/usr/local/mailman/Mailman/MailList.py", line 560, in __load
    fp = open(dbfile)
IOError: [Errno 13] Permission denied: '/usr/local/mailman/lists/mailman/config.pck'

and so i end up receiving a huge number of errors until i reset the owner-ship !
i tried using check_perms to fix this but check_perms indicates no problem at all.

Any help ?? Thanks in advance!
