If these are 'archive' templates you definitely need to restart Mailman
after installing them as they are cached in ArchRunner. You shouldn't
need to do this for 'web' templates and probably not for 'email'
templates, but it wouldn't hurt. Also, cronpass.txt isn't associated
with a list so it doesn't work in any lists/LISTNAME/en directory,
even the site list's. If you have restarted Mailman after putting
templates in lists/LISTNAME/en, and they still aren't being picked up,
then I don't know what the problem is. I don't think it's a Debianism.
