We are working on setting up mailman-users at mailman3.org (running on
MM 3 of course), but we're not quite there yet.

In the mean time the best list for Mailman 3 and particularly
HyperKitty, Postorius and MailmanBundler issues is
mailman-developers at python.org or you can try the #mailman IRC channel on

That said, is this possibly an issue with the wrong virtulaenv. I.e. you
didn't do the pip install in the same virtualenv as the rest of MM 3?
