        The prebuilt mailman package


        contains +INSTALL requirements on specific UID and GID for the
        package. If you try to upgrade from a previous installation
        where different GID/UID were used, and the username/groupname
        "mailman" still exist, it will fail. You will
        either have to "chown" your entire existing mailman tree, or
        unpack the .pkg, change the GROUP:/USER: definitions at the
        end of the +INSTALL file, and pack it back together again.

        It would be appreciated if the +INSTALL script took note of
        any existing user/group "mailman" and used the already exising
        UID/GID for the installation.
        Install old version of mailman.

        Upgrade to mentioned version of mailman.
        I'm note quite familiar with +INSTALL syntax, but I imagine
        that there is syntax for not requiring specific UID/GID
