I've got Mailman 2.1.b1 installed, and I was wondering about
international (specifically Japanese) characters in the subject line.
When recieving via e-mail (and viewing with a capable e-mail client),
the subject line, text, etc are all displayed correctly. As a test, I
put a few kanji in the title and message body, and hopped over to the
archives. The kanji/japanese in the body showed up just fine, but the
subject line became this:
Is this a known bug/work in progress, or is there something I can change
to fix it?

I'm using Mozilla and when I do this, I definitely see what look to me
like Chinese characters. You're right that the submit button isn't
there, but that's because the Chinese templates are woefully out of
We'll have to make a determination nearer to final release time about
which languages are suitable for release and which aren't.

2.1 is the release with multi-lingual support.
To help out, subscribe to mailman-i18n(a)python.org
and volunteer; I'm sure your help would be appreciated.
Time to time, it's a good idea just to check how good the templates are.
Here is a small patch that adds a target "check" for finding out the

I haven't had time to look at this, and probably won't for several
days. I like that Mailman's current tool chain works on my fairly
stock, ancient RH6.1-ish system, but it also is fairly unweildy
If the new version of gettext will make /your/ lives easier, I'm happy
to upgrade the Makefiles and such to rely on it. Comments are welcome.
