Hi, please, could someone update the mailman package? It's outdated quite a long (at least since February 2009) and there is a new version 2.1.13 from December 2009.
Flag it as out of date.
More importantly, try bumping the version and building and *running* the new version yourself. That way you can tell the maintainers things work great and they are relieved of some of the burden of testing a very unweildy to package package.
I tried the latest version of mailman (2.1.13) as you suggested. I used the PKGBUILD from SVN trunk, but I modified it, so that it does not require /home/mailman and mailman user and group to exist during build and I modified the mailman.install file so that useradd does not create /home/mailman. I'm not sure if this ML allows attachments, so the source tarball is on http://pub.progdan.cz/mailman-2.1.13-1.src.tar.gz if any dev were interested.
The mailman is working without problems, but making it work was not as simple as I thought at the beginning :) Our recent wiki page about mailman is absolutely useless. I would like to update it, put there a guide how to set up mailman (with postfix), but it's pointless until the package is updated.
