Much of your post is garbled like this.

This entry is being stored in your syslog:%s--with-cgi-gidwebCGI--with-mail-gidmailFailure to find group name for GID %d. Mailman expected the %s wrapper to be executed as group "%s", but the system's %s server executed the wrapper as GID %d for which the name could not be found. Try adding GID %d to your system as "%s", or tweak your %s server to run the wrapper as group "%s".Group mismatch error. Mailman expected the %s wrapper script to be executed as group "%s", but the system's %s server executed the %s script as group "%s".

That doesn't ever help.
First see the FAQ at <http://wiki.list.org/x/4030645>. That may help you
understand what's going on.
If that doesn't help, consider that you are dealing with a package about
which I know nothing and see the FAQ at <http://wiki.list.org/x/12812344>.
Also note that the guide you followed uses postfix_to_mailman.py. See
Your immediate problem is not with postfix_to_mailman.py, but the fact
that the guide recommends it makes the whole thing suspect in my mind.
