There are several choices.

You could try adding '&>filename' to your external archiver command
string. That will probably work

You can do as you suggest above.

You can replace your "import syslog" with

from Mailman.Logging.Syslog import syslog
from Mailman.Logging.Utils import LogStdErr

and add

LogStdErr('debug', 'mailmanctl', manual_reprime=0)

and change your syslog.syslog('debug text') statements to

syslog('debug', 'debug text')

This will write all stderr output plus your 'debug text' entries to a
log named debug in Mailman's logs directory. (You can name the log
anything you want. It will be created if it doesn't exist.)

I see you've gotten further. I'll respond to that post.
