Thank you for the reply. I have actually made some good progress on
this. The biggest thing I did that helped was switch from the Debian
package, which scatters files across the system, to compiling from
source and pointing it (./configure --prefix) to a directory inside the
jail. This worked much better, since everything was in the some tree,
and I only had a few permissions to sort out.
So far, it appears to work well. I have one error with the postalias
call, but since I'm using postfix-to-mailman.py I don't think I need it
and the list is created despite that crash.
Once I have done more testing, I will try to write this up (maybe for
the Wiki?) if it seems it would be helpful.
