I've got 8.10 and mailman is working just fine. That said, I installed
it originally on 7.04 and have been through three distro upgrades (with
a fourth coming imminently). I did have some teething problems, but
resolved them by reading through the documentation. 

My setup is postfix, apache2 and mailman from the ubuntu packages. If
interested I am willing to share my (anonymised) config files.
