Ok, I removed the public archives.  I didn't rm -r, just copied them 
elsewhere in case this didn't work.

Our digest goes out at noon (and did).  I assume that qualifies as "the 
next time it does anything to the list".   Four new messages went 
through the list since then as well.

The public archive folder didn't rebuild.

Tail on the error log says:


   File "/opt/local/share/mailman/Mailman/MailList.py", line 574, in Save


   File "/opt/local/share/mailman/Mailman/Archiver/Archiver.py", line 
241, in CheckHTMLArchiveDir

     makelink(privdir, pubdir)

   File "/opt/local/share/mailman/Mailman/Archiver/Archiver.py", line 
49, in makelink

     os.symlink(old, new)

OSError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory

Your thoughts?  FYI, this is on Mac 10.9.5, non-server version, if that 
makes any difference.
