Bug Description

conftest.py created in sourcecode/mailman/configure.in gets passed a partial group name when the group name has a space, such as "domain users".

It appears to be passed at line 382 where it is assigned to mailmangroup and that MM_FIND_GROUP_NAME takes a list of space separated groups.

This is not worth fixing. Mailman 3 doesn't use the same mechanism, and in all the years of MM2 development, this is the first such complaint about this I've seen. I didn't even know spaces in group names on *nix was allowed <wink>.
