This doesn't seem right. From the referenced archive message, the
change is supposed to add a hit for negative timezones, but that's
/not/ what those last three \d's are trying to match. They're trying
to match a four-digit year. It makes no sense to add an optional sign
to the year matching field.
If we wanted to be really correct about this, _isrealfromline() always
return true because the pre-test already does the Right Thing in
matching exactly line.startswith('From ') -- see . I'd make that
change, but it worries me because some earlier versions of Mailman did
not properly >-mangle embedded From_ lines, so it /could/ break
existing archives even worse. I'm not comfortable with this as a
patch for 2.0.1.
