[Mailman-Developers] Can we remove nimda.txt ?

Hi Developers,

I have committed a few new feature in the Release_2_1-maint branch
of mailman CVS. Please export/checkout the new source code and test
them in your test/working mailman installation and feed back.

Also, I want to ask 'nimda.txt' in the tests/msgs directory is of
any use in the mailman source code. None of the test scripts refer
to this file. I even did "find . | xargs grep nimda" only to get
"Binary file ./tests/msgs matches". If none of you can find usage
of this file, I want to remove from the source tree because some
companies prohibit to download a file which contain nimda file.
(I know it's nonsense but ...)

Here is the diff for current NEWS file. (I believe Barry can
fix my poor English.) More will come later because I get requests
of merging patches personally. But, please be patient as I will
check the patches and bugs for assigning to myself when it comes
your turn. ;-)
