maybe being added to group 'list' would fix it indeed. however, i am not quite sure how
this is supposed to work:
joostvb@moszumanska:~% ls -l /var/lib/mailman/archives/public/debian-science-sagemath
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root list 69 авг 9 2016 /var/lib/mailman/archives/public/debian-science-sagemath -> /srv/lists.alioth.debian.org/archives/private/debian-science-sagemath
joostvb@moszumanska:~% ls -ld /srv/lists.alioth.debian.org/archives/private/debian-science-sagemath
ls: cannot access /srv/lists.alioth.debian.org/archives/private/debian-science-sagemath: Permission denied
joostvb@moszumanska:~% ls -ld /srv/lists.alioth.debian.org/archives/private
drwxrws--- 2787 www-data list 131072 нов 13 20:08 /srv/lists.alioth.debian.org/archives/private/
'public' symlinking to 'private' feels wrong to me.
better contact firstname.lastname@example.org i guess, or file a bug.
