Yes. 2.4.6-17 to be precise.

Thanks for the reply. Yep, that was it. Odd that the install package
included the directive for the archives but not the scripts. However,
the only step I did not do yet is the URL change (I am testing a
kickstart file) so my last problem may be due to that but I am thinking
not. When I access the listinfo, no lists are published but I can see
them in /var/lib/mailman/lists. Also the admin pages are not password
projected. So either I did not copy something from the old server
(CentOS 6 (32 bit)) or whatever I did copy from 2.1.12 (32 bit) is not
compatible with 2.1.15 (64 bit). There is probably a 'withlist' command
that fixes all this but that command cannot be run in the kickstart file
so I'd rather copy the appropriate files from the old server if
possible. Is there something other than /var/lib/mailman that I should
have copied? Perhaps something in /usr/lib/mailman.

P.S. I still have to figure out how to migrate my custom changes which
are in /usr/lib/mailman.
