A colleage dragged me over to look at a problem he had with Mailman on a Red Hat
7.3 box. The web frontend was barfing because it couldn't log to 

It was because /var/log was owned by root:bin and was mode 0700 so the average

process couldn't get to /var/log to get to /var/log/mailman 

Just wondering if he had an unusual permission set or if the package for Red Hat
7.3 is broken in terms of permissions or setuid users or something. 

Anyone else running Mailman under Red Hat 7.3?
