There are still a few of things to mop up, after an otherwise successful 
installation of Mailman on OS X El Capitan with Server 5.2.

Every 5 min my admin user account on the server gets an email from the Cron 
Daemon that has this line:

IOError: [Errno 13] Permission denied: 

Here are my observations:

1. I currently have no file at /usr/local/mailman/locks/ whose name starts with 

2. My root Crontab has these lines:

        # Every 5 mins, try to gate news to mail. You can comment this one out
        # if you don't want to allow gating, or don't have any going on right 
        # or want to exclusively use a callback strategy instead of polling.
        # 0,5,10,15,20,25,30,35,40,45,50,55 * * * * /usr/bin/python -S 

   In other words, the gate_news cron job is commented out.

3. I have run /usr/local/mailman/bin/check_perms -f, but that has had no impact.
