Description of problem:
The mailman installation procedure requires installation of a crontab file
for user mailman. The RPM installs the correct crontab entries, but as
root instead of mailman. This causes root's previous crontab to be
overwritten, and it is not backed up.
Steps to Reproduce:
2.Check root's crontab file.
Actual Results: root's crontab is overwritten
Expected Results: mailman's crontab is overwritten
This should be fixed in 2.0.5-2 and later, which handle being built on systems
without a preexisting mailman account better.
