I wouldn't say it was an integral part of the package - it works without
it - however it would extremely useful for shared environments where a
list admin may not have root or shell access.

I used to put it in %doc (my own repo versions) however it seemed the
resulting RPM picked up extra dependencies I didn't want, unless I
removed execute access from those files.

This would work OK - /var/www/mlmmj-web would make most sense to me (and
should keep SELinux happy too) and generating an Apache .conf for it is
trivial . Unfortunately users of other webservers with different roots
would still need to adjust accordingly. Oh, well.

However I'd need to get package approval and a build queued before I
deal with that, as I've not been able to do the latter due to a lack of
the former.
