Not at all. You need to create a directory templates/tr, copying all the pages
from templates/en. Then you need to add a line

add_language('tr', _('Turkish'), 'iso-8859-9')

to Mailman/Defaults.py. Then you need to select Turkish as the default language
in your mailing list.

The steps above should solve most of your problems. It should allow:
- to use iso-8859-9 in all Web pages, and
- to use Turkish characters in headers and footers.

Yes. With Turkish templates, the headers should work fine.

Not for the next version, no.
