Subject: mailman: broken logo
Date: Tue, 04 Apr 2000 18:03:18 +0300
Package: mailman
Version: 1.1-4
Severity: normal

hello,

this is from README.Debian:

	If a broken image shows on your mailman html pages, it is probably because
	you don't have the /doc/ alias enabled in your webserver. Copy the
	/usr/share/doc/mailman/images/mailman.jpg to a place where your webserver can 
	access it and modify the DELIVERED_BY_URL option accordingly in your 
	mm_cfg.py (the default is '/doc/mailman/images/mailman.jpg').

since /doc is disabled by default (and enabling it would be
a security hole), the broken image is there by default.

imho, mailman should work out of the box.

So where do you suggest I should put them ?

Subject: No policy for this
Date: 24 Mar 2001 01:43:04 +0100
There isn't any policy on this one, and I am not willing to put the
images in the webroot - I think that would be cluttering things up.
Also, I don't think that a couple of broken images are really a
problem - it's a minor thing.  Mailman works just fine.

So, unless my policy proposal for this gets any attention, I am not
going to do anything about this.
