I am the only person that maintains this box.
I installed this program, to the best of my knowledge, through apt-get

subdirectories under '/var/mailman/' and kept the "correct" installation
under '/usr/local/mailman'

I am going to reconfigure the installation to make sure it is working

Fingers crossed!
