Below is my little experience with majordomo (version 1.94.4), still
not working :(. under Debian/GNU Linux. Debian has a majordomo package
but it is installed in a slightly different way. The scripts files are
owned by root:root (in /usr/lib/majordomo) and the lists directory tree

documentation was that the list owner need only belong to the majordomo
group with write privilege and she/he will be able to handle all list
