I've installed mailman from both the current ports and packages
and noted a common problem.

It seems that after a clean install, sometime later, permissions are
getting changed on its directory tree.  In going through the
various /etc/periodic entries, I don't see where this is getting done.
There is some very brief discussion of this in the mailman docs,
but I'm still slightly confused.  So..., I guess the question is,
how to do I install mailman such that check_perms does not grumble about
things like this:

directory permissions must be 02775: 
/usr/local/mailman/archives/private/testing.mbox
directory permissions must be 02775: /usr/local/mailman/archives/private/testing
directory permissions must be 02775: 
/usr/local/mailman/archives/private/testing/2007-August
directory permissions must be 02775: /usr/local/mailman/lists/testing
Problems found: 4
Re-run as mailman (or root) with -f flag to fix

Do I need to install mailman with some special flag set or is there
a way to keep whatever is doing this from clobbering the permissions?

FWIW, I am running sendmail with MailScanner/clamav/spamassassin.
There are thus three running instances:

root     1066  0.0  0.1  4492  2588  ??  Ss   11:00PM   0:10.65 sendmail: 
accepting connections (sendmail)
root     1073  0.0  0.1  3640  2232  ??  Is   11:00PM   0:00.03 sendmail: Queue 
runner@00:15:00 for /var/spool/mqueue (sendmail)
smmsp    1081  0.0  0.1  3508  2112  ??  Is   11:00PM   0:00.03 sendmail: Queue 
runner@00:15:00 for /var/spool/clientmqueue (sendmail)



TIA,
