I'm not sure why you decided to add Django as a dependency of Mailman
but it is a losey idea to add an additional entire operational
development platform in order to just get a mailing list up and running.

It is bad enough that the mailman python modules are constantly pinning
the CPUs of my systems, but adding Django not only means having to
completely rework my apache server configuration, which is strangely
enough is not running for the sole purpose of being used as an adjunct
to the mail list, but to force feeds an unwanted enormous security hole
since it is a development platform which is exposed to the public.

So many immigrant groups have swept through our town
that Brooklyn, like Atlantis, reaches mythological
proportions in the mind of the world - RI Safir 1998
