During the past month or so, there have been at least two periods of a
few days or more each during which any attempts to commit changes to
the Mailman FAQ <http://www.python.org/cgi-bin/faqw-mm.py> have
produced errors like the following:

Sorry, an error occurred
Can't write file faq01.011.htp ([Errno 13] Permission denied:  

During the periods that this has been occurring the same error (except
for file name) occurs on any commit of changes to an existing entry or
addition of a new entry.

It appears to be working OK now, but at least once before, it started
working again and then the problem reappeared for a few days.

Can you shed any light on what was happening?

Can you suggest a procedure to follow if this occurs again.
