I can only remind that ISO-8859-2 is very limited character set that is continuously replaced by UTF-8 and not really good choice even for lists containing only messages in Polish.

I wasn't thinking about python.org <http://python.org/> but about linux distributions and their attitude to stable/2.1 Mailman releases - from that perspective 2.1.19 won't be that different form 3.0 as a release and trying to make upgrades non-disruptive has much less value.

Right, Mailman 3, I have a plan not to use it as long as feasible having seen test versions of archiver and requirements for l10n.

Public archive was the reason, it was unacceptable mess before switch to utf8.
