Yes I have got the list running, and these are the only errors.

I'm going to ignore these as it seems to work. Maybe you are right that
there is something deepper down that is allowing this usage. Once the
migration is complete, I'll run a lot of tests against that list and see
the outut.

Thanks again for your help

I gather from your post in the thread "Not able to send and receive
messages posted to a list" that your problem appears to be resolved. If
so, I don't understand. I gather that 'list' is your Mailman user/group.

I don't understand why check_perms can't fix this unless 'list' is not a
registered group. I also don't understand why Mailman works with these
errors unless there are some world (or perhaps owner) permissions that
allow it. See
for a discussion of Mailman's security.
