Do you know which mailing list is giving problems ?

I can't find any list for which this user is the admin, and he is a member of several projects with several mailing lists.

- assaf

For savannah admins:

Empty set (0.00 sec)

where 69322 is the user-id of .

according to "Monnand",
Mailing lists->Configure->check Reset List Admin Password->Submit
sends a new password, but it doesn't actually work for logging in to the mailman admin web interface for the list:
"Authorization failed."

posting here in case someone gets up the energy to look at it. (off-list email of 09 Apr 2017 06:11:32)
