That would be good. Emphasize that I am the person who does all the
upstream maintenance of Mailman 2.1 and that I want to work with them to
resolve this issue.
Of course, the resolution is problematic, because I really think your
workaround is the correct solution.
Notifications to list -owner addresses are sent with envelope from the
site list -bounces address to avoid bounce loops that would occur if
they were sent with envelope from the list -bounces address if the
-owner address is actually bouncing (because it's not deliverable, not
because of sender verify).
In a normal (non-cPanel) installation this will result in the bounce
going to the site list owner which is reasonable.
If we fix cPanel's Exim config to understand that
mailman-bounces at your.domain is really the -bounces address for the site
list, those bounces will go to the site list owner which in the cPanel
case is often the web host who (with a few notable exceptions of which I
am aware) knows nothing about Mailman or your lists.
With your workaround, they go to you and you are in a better position to
deal with undeliverable owner addresses for lists in your domain.
