Please note that the /etc/init.d/mailman that supports the 'status'
argument is provided by RedHat as part of their Mailman package.

The suggested init.d script provided by the Mailman project is
installed by our install process as scripts/mailman with the intent
that it will be reviewed by the site and moved or copied to
/etc/init.d or whatever directory is appropriate. It supports only
'start', 'stop' and 'restart' as arguments.
