Description Bas Huisman 2004-03-30 02:03:32 UTC
Apache can't serve the icons which come with mailman. It's authrisation issue.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. emerge apache
2. emerge mailman

Actual Results:  
The mailman icons are not shown.

Apache log:

[Tue Mar 30 11:52:51 2004] [error] [client] File does not exist:
/var/www/localhost/icons/mailman.jpg, ...
[Tue Mar 30 11:52:51 2004] [error] [client] File does not exist:
/var/www/localhost/icons/PythonPowered.png, ...
[Tue Mar 30 11:52:51 2004] [error] [client] File does not exist:
/var/www/localhost/icons/gnu-head-tiny.jpg, ...

Expected Results:  
the mailman icons should be shown

fix: append:

Alias /icons/ "/usr/local/mailman/icons/"
<Directory "/usr/local/mailman/icons/">
        AllowOverride None
        Order allow,deny
        Allow from all

to /etc/apache2/conf/modules.d/50_mailman.conf

That will break the apache2 icon files won't it?  One of the README.??.gz  files suggests that one copy all the mailman icons to the apache icons directory.  That works with the disadvantage that one requires manual intervention to get it working.

from the postinst :

 * Please read /usr/share/doc/mailman-2.1.5/README.gentoo.gz for additional
 * Setup information, mailman will NOT run unless you follow
 * those instructions!

$ less /usr/share/doc/mailman-*/README.gentoo.gz | grep icon
Copy the web icons:
     cp /usr/local/mailman/icons/* /var/www/localhost/icons

patching will complicate thing up. Resolve as WONTFIX.
