FAQ
The ownership of my logs files keep changing and then becoming unwriteable
(giving me the old "Permission Denied" traceback).

I've run check_perms -f. I know all about that. And then the ownership
is setup just fine. But then a few days later, the ownership has changed
and I start getting errors again.

Mailman 2.1.4
Debian Woody
Apache
Exim

I tried compiling with other users but this setup is the one
that sends out email and has working archives and CGI.

Permissions after check_perms -f:

-rw-rw-r-- 1 list mailman 0 Apr 25 07:37 bounce
-rw-rw-r-- 1 list mailman 0 Apr 25 07:37 error
-rw-rw-r-- 1 apache mailman 282 Apr 21 06:57 mischief
-rw-rw-r-- 1 mailman mailman 1584 Apr 25 09:35 post
-rw-rw-r-- 1 list mailman 0 Apr 25 07:37 qrunner
-rw-rw-r-- 1 list mailman 0 Apr 25 07:37 smtp
-rw-rw-r-- 1 apache mailman 6728 Apr 24 22:33 subscribe
-rw-rw-r-- 1 list mailman 0 Apr 25 07:37 vette

Permissions after a few days:

-rw-rw-r-- 1 list list 0 Apr 25 07:37 bounce
-rw-rw-r-- 1 list list 0 Apr 25 07:37 error
-rw-rw-r-- 1 apache mailman 282 Apr 21 06:57 mischief
-rw-rw-r-- 1 mailman mailman 1584 Apr 25 09:35 post
-rw-rw-r-- 1 list list 0 Apr 25 07:37 qrunner
-rw-rw-r-- 1 list list 0 Apr 25 07:37 smtp
-rw-rw-r-- 1 apache mailman 6728 Apr 24 22:33 subscribe
-rw-rw-r-- 1 list list 0 Apr 25 07:37 vette

The permissions that get changed each time I run check_perms -f are:

/usr/local/mailman/logs/error bad group (has: list, expected mailman) (fixing)
/usr/local/mailman/logs/qrunner bad group (has: list, expected mailman) (fixing)
/usr/local/mailman/logs/smtp bad group (has: list, expected mailman) (fixing)
/usr/local/mailman/logs/vette bad group (has: list, expected mailman) (fixing)
/usr/local/mailman/logs/bounce bad group (has: list, expected mailman) (fixing)
