How is the 'mailman' transport defined in master.cf? Undoubtedly it is
the "officially not supported by the GNU Mailman project", 3rd party

If so, please see the FAQ at <http://wiki.list.org/x/OIDD>.

I will help with postfix_to_mailman.py to the extent that I can, but it
frankly annoys me greatly that Debian/Ubuntu encourages its use, but
distributes a package which confuses users into trying to combine
postfix_to_mailman.py and aliases without apparently having adequate
documentation or support.

They won't have a clue about postfix_to_mailman.py. Try Ubuntu's Mailman
support if there is any or maybe Debian, But first learn the differences
between postfix_to_mailman.py delivery and delivery to Mailman via
aliases, and decide which you want to use and use only one method.

And in case you haven't guessed, if you want help from this list, we can
much better help you if you do it this way
