It works for me, but there are mirrors at
Also, since you are apparently installing from source, it is in the
source directory at admin/www/mailman-install/node9.html.
But I think I found what you mean :)
I now configured Mailman with
--prefix=/opt/mailman --with-mail-gid=mailman --with-cgi-gid=www
and all seems to work.
A bit strange, because if I read the entry for --with-cgi-gid
correctly, www should be taken as default.
The warning box I refer to talks about the necessity for the web server
to have search (x) permission on the archives/private directory,
either by that directory being world searchable or owned by the web
server user. configure and make install will create this directory
world searchable (o+x) and owned by the user that ran make install
(normally root), but bin/check_perms will warn you about this. If you
then remove the world searchable (o-x) without changing the owner (but
not the group), then you can't access public archives.
Another thing I don't understand is this: originally I configure
--prefix=/opt/mailman --with-mail-gid=bbs --with-cgi-gid=www
but then Mailman complained because the mail server (postfix) was
running with group mailman instead of bbs.
But postfix does not belong to group mailman...
Postfix runs a pipe as the user that owns the aliases file in which the
pipe is found.
