Description of Problem:

mailman doesn't like postfix, because postfix doesn't use
the gid 12 (mail), it seems postfix use 99 (nobody) as gid

every time a mail is sended to mailman it produces the following 
message:
This is the Postfix program at host safari.ksb-arg.com.

I'm sorry to have to inform you 
[snip]
The Postfix program

<emailarchives@ksb-arg.com>: Command died with status 2:
    "/var/mailman/mail/wrapper post emailarchives". Command output: 
Failure to
    exec script. WANTED gid 12, GOT gid 99.  (Reconfigure to take 99?)


the correct fix is to make postfix run as gid mail ?


How Reproducible:

100%

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install the postfix rpm (setup it)
2. install the mailman rpm (setup it & create a list)
3. mail to the list

Actual Results:

bounced message:
<emailarchives@ksb-arg.com>: Command died with status 2:
    "/var/mailman/mail/wrapper post emailarchives". Command output: 
Failure to
    exec script. WANTED gid 12, GOT gid 99.  (Reconfigure to take 99?)


Expected Results:

message go trough...


Additional Information:
	
none I can think off...

Please check if mailman-2.0.9-1 (coming to Raw Hide soonish) fixes this problem.

That looks like a good fix for that problem

I can test it on a box shortly.

However, I would encourage getting that patch put in upstream.
I'm sure there are others who would find it terribly useful.

Closing this -- it works for me now
