Mailman-Users is appropriate.

Normally, changing the group shouldn't be required as the group should
be 'mailman' (or whatever the mailman user is) on virtually everything.

Also, it wouldn't hurt to run bin/check_perms (and if necessary,
'bin/check_perms -f' as root) between 'make install' and start mailman.
