Answers to questions below:
As to your comment about using hashes for mailman...I'm thinking that might
be the best course, and for postfix in general, this s a REALLY small
installation as I mentioned and very low traffic realistically. We're not
running YahooGroups here :)
Yes, it uses is postfix_to_mailman.py thought I had that in the other
The directory /var/lib/mailman/lists/skunk-works does exist

So the 'mailman' service can deliver to mailtest at lists.netwrx1.org, but not
to skunk-works at lists.netwrx1.org. If this service is postfix_to_mailman.py
(You never confirmed that it was or wasn't), the only way this can happen is
if the $var-prefix/lists/skunk-works/ directory doesn't exist, but then
postfix_to_mailman should fail with an error message the would be in the
Postfix log message.
Therefore, it appears that the problem is not in the delivery of posts to
skunk-works at lists.netwrx1.org, but rather in the processing/delivery of the
post by Mailman.
Check Mailman's logs.
Also, are there any list members that would receive the post (Mailman's
'bin/list_members --regular --nomail=enabled skunk-works' will tell you). If
the only eligible recipient is you, is your 'not metoo' setting off?

If you want help from this list, we are best able to help you if you
configure Postfix to use hashes for Postfix's alias_maps and
virtual_alias_maps for Mailman list addresses as discussed at
<http://www.list.org/mailman-install/postfix-virtual.html>. I don't think
this is necessarily incompatible with using MySQL for other addresses.
