For public archives to work, the web server needs to be able to search
the archives/private directory that the archives/public/ symlinks point
Normally this only requires that the archives/private/ directory itself,
not any subordinates, be either o+x or owned by the web server user. The
subordinate LISTNAME and LISTNAME.mbox directories are normally
rwxrwsr-x and Mailman's group so Mailman can read and write them and
subordinates will be created in Mailman's group and the web server can
read and search them.
It's only archives/private itself which is in Mailman's group and either
rwxrws--x or if rwxrws---, owned by the web server user. Otherwise,
ownership doesn't matter.
