These sound like sensible plans and I'm curious about what 2.2 and 3.0 will 
bring. However, my question is whether we can expect some 2.1.x releases in 
the short term (like 2.1.10 you mentioned). As you say it will take quite 
some while for 2.2 to be released, and we'd like to get the fixed bugs in the 
2.1.x branch to our users in the meantime.

Regular 2.1.x releases with assorted fixes would be welcome to not scare users 
away from Mailman while we're waiting for the "big" releases.
