Description of problem:
It is very unfortunate that mailman has disappeared from RHEL since wee need it
on our servers.

Something is not OK with mailman on RHEL. I compiled and installed the
Fedora1 version of mailman on RHEL3AS (Intel ISP1100 box, 850 MHz, 512
MB RAM). It runs fine, but the python qrunner-OutgoingRunner process
takes 99% of the CPU and causes a load of around 1.2 even when "idle".
When a posting arrives to a list with 600 members, the load springs up
to just over 30.0 for a few minutes and settles down again to between
2.0 and 6.0 while the list mails are being produced. A posting to the
list in question (600 and some mails) which was cracked and whizzed
off in just a few minutes by an equivalent RH9 system now takes hours
to finish.

Question to Redhat: Was mailman taken out of RHEL for technical or for
non-technical reasons? In other words, is it worth trying to debug my
installation or are there known problems on which you already gave up?

Downgrading to mailman-2.1.1-4 from RH9 updates (also locally
compiled) solved all problems described in the previous entry; it just
works as it should.

This is marked as MODIFIED - does this mean that there are plans to
add mailman to RHEL 3?
Comment 6 David Juran 2005-03-29 04:21:22 EST
Since mailman was included into RHEL4 and also into RHEL3 in some errata while
ago I'll close this issue.
