Description William F. Dudley Jr. 2020-05-24 16:43:19 UTC
fresh install of 6.2.54 on FreeBSD 11.3

The directory /usr/local/etc/sympa ($SYSCONFDIR) was owned by
root:wheel. This should be changed to something similar to
root:sympa, 775, so that sympa may modify the aliases.sympa.sendmail

Also, /usr/local/share/sympa (parent directory of $STATICDIR) has
sub directories "arc", bounce", and "list_data", and these should
also be made writeable by sympa.

This isn't just config files affected.  The directories "arc", "bounce",
and "list_data" are for storage of data accumulated during normal
