Public bug reported:
(From a recent post to mailman-users at python.org)
I usually use the web interface for approving messages. But I
occasionally do it via Email. When I do, I get a response back that looks
The results of your email command are provided below. Attached is your
Approved: <admin password>
---- CUT HERE -----------------------
To me at least, this suggests that the message has been rejected, not
approved, as the text says that the approval command was not processed.
I know this isn't the case because I see the message posted to the list,
but when I initially saw it, I had a panic as I thought I'd lost a message
for the list.
Is it possible to fix this so that the message is more clear about what
has happened? The "Confirmation succeeded" message is not very
explanatory, and seen in isolation doesn't really tell you anythying about
whether the message was approved or rejected.
