   * What outcome did you expect instead?


It appears that the SpamAssasin module is added by the Debian packaging
and it used an interface from the main mailman package that was removed.

The version of mailman in Stable is fine (1:2.1.18-2+deb8u1) but that
in Testing ans Unstable are broken (1:2.1.22-1 and 1:2.1.23-1).
