Hi Developers and I18Ners,
I've bumped version number of mailman to 2.1.6a2 (a1 was not announced)
and made a tarball at my mailman-japanese site. Please get it at:
Mailman 2.1.6 should be compatible with Python 2.4 and including some
nice new features such as numbering in subject prefix and filtering
attachments by filename extensions.
Please download and test it and help us fixing bugs.

Before new Mailman subversion will be released I'd like to clarify one
think inside cron/mailpasswds script. Which in my opinion is buggy for
all non unicode translations.
Polish translation works perfect accept one think - monthy remainder is
sended with wrong encoding. Do other of you notice this problem?
I think source of problem is in file cron/mailpasswds, lines 208-209:
# Coerce everything to Unicode
text = tounicode(text, enc)
table = [tounicode(_t, enc) for _t in table]
Which is done for every language, and every encoding. After than
reminder text is given to Message.UserNotification class, where
additional encoding magic is done.
I many other places where Message.UserNotification is used no extra
encoding translations is made before(e.g. Mailman/Deliverer.py). So the
What for we "Coerce everything to Unicode"?
If I comment out this two lines in cron/mailpasswds, encoding problem
disappers - polish reminders are emailed with proper iso-8859 & QP.
So if there is not certain reason to "coerce everything", I propose to
delete this two lines.
I am learning and began to use Mailman. I would like to use it in Persian (Farsi). Is it possible?
If Mailman does not exist in farsi, I can still use it in english but the messages written in Farsi?
In fact, what do you mean by "Language" in Mailmain?
Thanks a lot
We are going to release a new micro-revision of mailman 2.1 series by
the end of this year (month ... December). I wish you the translators
can spare a little time to update your language mailman.po files. The
mailman.pot template file was already generated in the mid-November and
merged into the each language po files. You can download it with the
latest code from CVS (Release_2_1-maint branch). Or, if you are uneasy
downloading from CVS, I've made a tar ball for this version at:
You can update mailman.po directly on CVS if you have the privilege,
upload it in the SF patch tracker area, or send me
(tkikuchi(a)is.kochi-u.ac.jp) by email at your convenience.
