I am using the FC5 Mailman package.  The archive files since the new build
are being kept in /var/lib/mailman/archives/private/.....

However, the /etc/httpd/conf.d/mailman.conf file shows it as:
Alias /pipermail/ /var/lib/mailman/archives/public/

Where can I find where it is being forced to save it into private?
