/usr/local/mailman/archives/public/ is the path that results from a
default configure. To get closer to FHS you can configure with the options






Full FHS compliance is harder. See <http://wiki.list.org/x/8486953> and
the mailman-developers thread linked therefrom. Note that this is a Red
Hat patch, not standard Mailman.

If you want to file a bug for documentation purposes, feel free, but it
will be marked 'won't fix - wishlist' for MM 2.1.
