for example:

Bug in Mailman version 2.1a4

We're sorry, we hit a bug!

If you would like to help us identify the problem, please email a copy
of this page to the webmaster for this site with a description of what
happened. Thanks! 


Traceback (most recent call last):

IOError: [Errno 2] No template file found: 'admlogin.html'

I have figured this out, becouse there are some new templates in
/en/ directory, which are not translated/localized
in other supported languages. In gettext is
it OK, not found translation=use original version.

Not very. I have also some official lists for uni and some
unofficial for friends. The unofficial are archived on another machine(s).
But it is also possible send redirect while client
accesses not locally archived maillist archive.

It has sayd somethink about HyperArch.Article, but I am now not able
to reproduce it. It was probably only some temporary problem.
