I did this myself - it works all right. Put specific texts in.
What I need is to find out where the texts of the admin pages are "stored"
before set up as htmls.

That sounds good. Is the patch available ?

There you are. So you say that python has the texts ? I thought it should
be somewhere in the .pys of mailman. Where do I have to search ?
(for instance, having translated the listinfo.txt, all of a sudden the
english words "A password reminder will be sent to you once a month". This
cannot be hardcoded - it=B4s mailman specific. So where to look ?
