Our company is evaluating mailman3 as an option for company internal list serving.
One of the requirements is that anyone with access to the list server be allowed to create and manage lists.
Is this possible? If so, how? Is there a "create list" role that can be added for all registered users?

I've copied this post and set Reply-To: to the Mailman 3 users list

That said, we are working on packaging for a more turn-key installation,
but we aren't there yet. I've installed a couple of instances including
the one at lists.mailman3.org, and it does require extra work. Some of
the work in my case is because I want to run all the Mailman pieces from
the heads of their branches rather than what's in PyPI, but even without
that, installation is significantly more work than installing a distro's
I will be writing up my experiences, but that's not done yet either.
I will say that once you have Mailman 3 installed and running, updating
(which I do frequently, but which doesn't need to be done unless you
want specific updates/fixes) is pretty easy.
As far as alternatives are concerned There is an up to date Mailman 2.1
branch with better virtual domain support at
<https://code.launchpad.net/~msapiro/mailman/vhost>, but I think in the
long run, you'd be better off with Mailman 3.

Hello World! Very nice to meet you all this afternoon!
In order to avoid compatibility issues, I reinstalled CentOs 7. Firewalld, Apache and BIND are operational. I also installed Python 3.4 at http://www.codeghar.com/blog/install-latest-python-on-centos-7.html; however I understand that Python 2.7 is still available and am confused about usage of each version.
I downloaded the tarball for mailman 3.0.3. I will greatly appreciate if you quickly let me know how to install it. I do not wish to use mailman bundler.
