Description waitman 2021-03-08 15:16:39 UTC
After installing mail/mailman3, pkg-message is displayed:

To initialise Mailman's runtime directories, log files and database
for the first time, run

  service mailman info

You can then start Mailman by running:

  service mailman start


running "mailman info" reports errors that the following are not installed:

py37-gunicorn
py37-importlib-resources
py37-authres
py37-authheaders

After installing these manually, 

# service mailman info
Usage: mailman [OPTIONS] COMMAND [ARGS]...
Try 'mailman -h' for help.

Error: Invalid value for '-C' / '--config': File '/usr/local/mailman/etc/mailman.cfg' does not exist.

Are there that few people using this port? Over 6 months with a breaking bug and no fix or even a posted workaround?
Comment 4 Ekkehard 'Ekki' Gehm 2021-12-01 14:41:31 UTC
PING

Same here. And mailman2 is EOL in a few weeks due to EOL of py27

and after installing above packages:

 # service mailman info
Usage: mailman [OPTIONS] COMMAND [ARGS]...
Try 'mailman -h' for help.

Error: Invalid value for '-C' / '--config': File '/usr/local/mailman/etc/mailman.cfg' does not exist.
Comment 5 Ekkehard 'Ekki' Gehm 2021-12-01 14:52:38 UTC
Quick tip:

I ran 'mailman shell'. After that I have a (minimalistic) mailman.cfg.

'service mailman info' still gives an error but 'mailman info' does not...

Continue from this point now... lets see
Comment 6 Marcin Cieślak 2022-04-29 12:00:09 UTC
I just run into https://bugs.freebsd.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=263652 trying to "pkg install py38-mailman" and then "service mailman onestop". 

After installing the dependency "pkg install -A py38-psutil" here comes the next one:

# service mailman onestop                                         Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/local/bin/mailman", line 33, in <module>
    sys.exit(load_entry_point('mailman==3.3.1', 'console_scripts', 'mailman')())
  File "/usr/local/bin/mailman", line 25, in importlib_load_entry_point
    return next(matches).load()
  File "/usr/local/lib/python3.8/importlib/metadata.py", line 77, in load
    module = import_module(match.group('module'))
  File "/usr/local/lib/python3.8/importlib/__init__.py", line 127, in import_module
    return _bootstrap._gcd_import(name[level:], package, level)
  File "<frozen importlib._bootstrap>", line 1014, in _gcd_import
  File "<frozen importlib._bootstrap>", line 991, in _find_and_load
  File "<frozen importlib._bootstrap>", line 975, in _find_and_load_unlocked
  File "<frozen importlib._bootstrap>", line 671, in _load_unlocked
  File "<frozen importlib._bootstrap_external>", line 843, in exec_module
  File "<frozen importlib._bootstrap>", line 219, in _call_with_frames_removed
  File "/usr/local/lib/python3.8/site-packages/mailman/bin/mailman.py", line 22, in <module>
    from mailman.config import config
  File "/usr/local/lib/python3.8/site-packages/mailman/config/__init__.py", line 20, in <module>
    from mailman.config.config import Configuration
  File "/usr/local/lib/python3.8/site-packages/mailman/config/config.py", line 27, in <module>
    from importlib_resources import path, read_text
ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'importlib_resources'

After "pkg install -A py38-importlib-resources" I finally get something better:

# service mailman onestop
Usage: mailman [OPTIONS] COMMAND [ARGS]...
Try 'mailman -h' for help.

Error: Invalid value for '-C' / '--config': File '/usr/local/mailman/etc/mailman.cfg' does not exist.

Which is not the best error message, either.
