I am writing this e-mail as a sort of last resort. Believe me I've tried hard,
but can't find a solution to the following problem.
-I installed mailman on a debian server with postfix.
-all mailing lists work.
now, whenever the cronscripts run, or somebody sends a mail over one of the
lists, the permissions of some file (usually something like:
"/var/lib/mailman/lists/listname/config.pck") will change from www:mailman to
after this happens, I can no longer access the web-interface.
Bug in Mailman version 2.1.5

I tried many things including:
I have tried forcing the permissions by doing a chmod u+s. that didn't work
>drwsrwsr-x 6 www-data mailman 4096 Sep 9 01:11 listname
I tried to change
MAILMAN_USER = 'www-data'
but this resulted in a
Mailman mail-wrapper: Group mismatch error.
I was then thorougly confused by suexec stuff
-see "6.17. Apache+Suexec"
one the one hand, this suggests I should run everything as mailman:mailman and
on the other hand I am warned strongly against this in the mailman
installation docs. not to mention that the apache docs concerning suexec are
daunting. well as apache doc are ;-)
and DON'T tell me to run check_perms!
so now here is my question:
can anybody help me?
