I don't have the messages left here to check (deleted and purged),
but determining is fairly easy: just check the Received lines.
Points to check:

  1) Received lines coming into python.org and Mailman

  2) Received lines coming out of Mailman.

If the headers in #1 are all identical then the problem is not with
the sender.  If they are different then the problem is upstream of
python.org and Mailman.

If the headers in #2 are identical then the problem is with the MTA
at python.org or some other later system (see where the divergence
is).  If the headers in #2 are different then Mailman is the source
of the dupes.

Remember: Python.org is running a beta version of Mailman precisely
so we can shake out these sorts of bugs (if it is Mailman's fault).
