Summary: Missing Japanese

Initial Comment:
I am attempting to install the latest Mailman from Source Forge.

I have not specified any language but am hoping to get English.

The "make install" failed with an error message similar to "cannot import
in the /usr/local/mailman/bin/paths.py file.

I commented that line of misc/paths.py out (and also lines relating to korean
anticipating problems there) and repeated "make install", which succeeded.

OS: GNU Linux (Mandreva 2007) with nothing special or unique
Python 2.4.1

The exact error message is the one that Python generates when the line:

     import japanese

is encountered on line 56 of file /usr/local/mailman/bin/paths.py because
there is no japanese.* file.

If you tell us what your OS is and what your Python version is and exactly
what error occurred and where, we may be able to help debug this. If you
wish to follow up, the best place is the mailman-users at python.org list

I can tell you that configure and make install work for most people, but
there have been reports of problems with some systems, but there is not
enough information in this report for us to figure out what the problem is
in this case.
