We're in the process of switching www.python.org to a new
machine, and it may take a while for the DNS changes to propagate.
In the meanwhile, we're disallowing updates to the Mailman FAQ
Wizard on the old machine, so that we can make sure we've got the
absolute latest material on the new system.
Please bear with us. I believe that the new machine will be a
huge improvement over the old creaky system, but it may take us a day
or two to get all the bugs worked out.
If you run into any unusual problems, please let us know.

I've got another mailing list server installation (Mailman 2.1.5
and postfix 2.2-20040504), and I've just discovered that one of the
lists has been broken for about a month and I'm having some problems
figuring out how messages are being lost.
The postfix logs are clearly showing the messages being sent to
"post", but no evidence of them shows up anywhere in the Mailman
logs. They're not in the post, error, or vette logs, and I can't
figure out where else to be looking. I also can't figure out where I
need to add some more debugging information to the log output.
I'm stumped. Can someone give me some advice here?

I am working on integrating PGP and S/MIME with Mailman (see
http://non-gnu.uvt.nl/pub/mailman/ and my previous post
The PGP stuff works, I am now working with pyme
(http://pyme.sourceforge.net/) and GPGME to get S/MIME stuff done.
I've found out the hard way that GPGME is pretty rough on the edges and
am considering moving to OpenSSL (e.g. using pyOpenSSL or M2Crypto). I
would really like to get my patch used by a lot of people, and it would
really rock if one day the patch could get shipped with the upstream
Mailman distribution. Now, would using a Python OpenSSL library
diminish my chances, e.g. because of licensing issues? And should I
therefore stick with GPGME?
Thanks for any insight.

Some time ago, the link to the "Reply-To munging considered useful"
essay changed from
This was fixed by Barry in CVS for
mailman/mailman/Mailman/Gui/General.py on July 1, 2005, but only in
the details for reply_goes_to_list. I just noticed the link is also in
the details for reply_to_address and needs to be fixed there too.
