2.0.13 is released.  Just download the tarball.  You can easily make
diffs by doing the following:

tar -xzf mailman-2.0.13.tar gz
mv mailman-2.0.13-dist
tar -xzf mailman-2.0.13.tar gz # Yes, again

Then make your edits in the mailman-2.0.13 directory.  When you've got
everything working, then do a:

diff -u mailman-2.0.13-dist mailman-2.0.13 > mailman-evote.diff

This'll recurse through both directories create a patch file.

The 5 year plan:
In five years we'll make up another plan.
Or just re-use this one.
