I do have mailman running with some lists, and I wondered how ot get support
for latin1 charsets (mainly french & german special chars, euro would be
Instead of ä (ä) I get =E4, which to me looks like qouted printable.
This is only for the archives, the messages get delivered fine, and special
chars show up fine.
any inputs welcome

Sorry guys, I was using one of those web mailers and it looks like this
particular mailer sends the actual message text base64-encoded, for
reasons that currently escape me.
I'm now writing with Netscape and telling it to restrict to plain text, so
I hope it will display properly everywhere.
I'm putting the i18n list in cc: again to see what happens.
I'm wondering, would there be any reason to hack around this misfeature

Thanx for the clarifications Barry, in fact I think I might have hit a bug
in 2.1a4: but how do I know it hasn't been reported by someone else? I
know I might browse the mailman-developers archive, but wouldn't it be
better and easier if the SF bugtracker were used for this, too?
Coming to translations and helping out: I'd gladly do it, and if Simone
Piunno is reading this he can contact me to lend him a hand.
The problem is, my workstations tend to be Windows boxes, so emacs isn't
really an option... a web based thing would be best, actually, so that
registered translators could go check the status and fill in the blanks...
something simpler than the idea described by Fil in the parallel thread on
French translations would suffice, though.
I'm just imagining a web page with the original english messages and text
boxes aside them: some of them would be blank, some (most) would be
filled... translators (obviously authenticated in some way) could add
and/or modify, the other people could just see what's there and possibly
download a snapshot.
But I guess it would be a lot of work to put up such a system just for
Anyway, this was my 2c. Thanks again to everybody.
I'm looking for a french translation of MailMan v2.0.7.
Do you have it ?

I (hope) successfully installed mailman 2.1a4 on a Linux server, using
qmail and apache, and it looks as if everything is working. Created a
couple lists, enrolled some users, etc. and I'd say 99% bug-free (not
the easiest setup I ever did, but... :-)
I set Italian as the default language for the lists, and this is
correct, too. However, although the italian translation seems complete,
there are still some parts of the web pages that appear in English,
like a paragraph or two here and there, and the rest of the page is
However, it looks like Simone Piunno (who did an excellent job of
translation) actually completed his work, since the .po file is
Now, what am I missing? Does the template need to be completed, or
revised? Or did Simone in fact skip something and I didn't notice it?
Thanks for any response
P.S. BTW, can anyone tell me which is the "preferred" way to signal
possible bugs? I know I should ask this on another ML, but I guess
someone could direct me to the best way. Excuse me and thanx again.
