FAQ
I run about eight mailman lists on my server. I noticed that the archive files
are being created, but the index.html file that links to the monthly archives
is not being generated, so there were only links to older months. What
process is supposed to generate these? There must be some cron entry or
other that I'm missing. /etc/cron.d/mailman has:
0 8 * * * mailman /usr/bin/python -S /usr/lib/mailman/cron/checkdbs
0 9 * * * mailman /usr/bin/python -S /usr/lib/mailman/cron/disabled
0 12 * * * mailman /usr/bin/python -S /usr/lib/mailman/cron/senddigests
0 5 1 * * mailman /usr/bin/python -S /usr/lib/mailman/cron/mailpasswds
0,5,10,15,20,25,30,35,40,45,50,55 * * * * mailman /usr/bin/python -S /usr/lib/
mailman/cron/gate_news
27 3 * * * mailman /usr/bin/python -S /usr/lib/mailman/cron/nightly_gzip
57 3 * * * mailman /usr/bin/python -S /usr/lib/mailman/cron/nightly_archives

When I try to run nightly_archives by hand, it says "No archives to process.".
I noticed that the script attempts to open mm_cfg.EDITED_ARCHIVES_FILE, but
no such file exists on my system. Is mailman supposed to create/update that
file whenever a list gets a post?

Background: Suse 9.0 Professional, mailman-2.1.2-44.

First post to the list; sorry if this has been covered.
