Mailman Digests broken after 58 Update

Servers that are upgraded to version 58 will find out that the cronjob for mailman has been erased. This will break the sending out of digests.

When I discovered this, I re-added the cronjob using the script at ../mailman/cron/crontab.in. However this is not working either. The cronjob is running according to /var/log/cron but digests are not being sent out. I then noticed there is a difference in the command line for the cron entry that handles the sending out of digests:

New:
0 12 * * * mailman /usr/local/cpanel/scripts/restartsrv_mailman --status &> /dev/null && /usr/bin/python -S /usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/mailman/cron/senddigests

Previous:
0 12 * * * /usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/bin/python -S /usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/mailman/cron/senddigests

Can someone else confirm this and can I get cPanel to look into this? The fact that the original cronjob was erased after the upgrade is problematic and has caused me a big headache! Not very good quality control if you ask me.

Hello,

The following resolution in cPanel 58.0.24 should address this issue:

Fixed case CPANEL-8109: rlimits for a service will only be set when starting it.

You can review the full change log, information on updating cPanel/WHM, and information on the build/release process at:

58 Change Log - Change Logs - cPanel Documentation
How can I update cPanel & WHM?
Product Versions and the Release Process - cPanel Knowledge Base - cPanel Documentation

As a temporary workaround, you can replace the following entry in /etc/cron.d/mailman:

Code:
0 12 * * * mailman /usr/local/cpanel/scripts/restartsrv_mailman --status &> /dev/null && /usr/bin/python -S /usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/mailman/cron/senddigests
With:

Code:
0 12 * * * mailman /usr/bin/python -S /usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/mailman/cron/senddigests
Thank you.

Nope, were running 58.0.25 and still get that problem.
Please let us know the output when running the following command as root via SSH:

Code:
sudo -Hu mailman /scripts/restartsrv_mailman --status
Thank you.
