I don't think so. I think you are misunderstanding what you read. You
do need a 'mailman' (or 'mm') user and group, you just don't want your
web server to invoke the wrappers as that group. Thats what
--with-cgi-gid is for. Read
and if you still think there is a problem with the documentation, we
would be happy to get your specific suggestions for improvement.
