[Mailman-Users] Confused about data/aliases* permissions

I'm trying to install Mailman on a GNU/Linux box with Postfix.  
Following the instructions in the installation manual a chown'd data/ 
aliases* to mailman:mailman. However when I try to create a group  
from the web interface I get an error because postalias can't write  
data/aliases.db. I got it to work by changing the ownership to  
nobody:nobody (since the webserver run's as nobody) but that doesn't  
seem right. What am I doing wrong here?
