Are you saying that is the page on which you found "an old help screen
in the mailman home page"?

I can't even access that page - 403.

In Debian/Ubuntu, your apache config is the files in /etc/apache2
including apache2.conf, conf-available/*, conf.d/*, mods-available/* and

You probably have /etc/apache2/mods-available/alias.conf containing
Alias /icons/ "/usr/share/apache2/icons/" which says
/usr/share/apache2/icons/ is where you should put the mailman.jpg,
PythonPowered.png and gnu-head-tiny.jpg files assuming you haven't
changed the Defaults.py

IMAGE_LOGOS = '/icons/'

setting by overriding it with something else in mm_cfg.py.
