[Mailman-Users] quick note for those ugrading mailman

Just a quick note for people upgrading mailman to the current CVS 
(but always a good thing to remember any time you upgrade mailman):

If you ugprade mailman and that upgrade includes changes to the list 
page templates, the mailman upgrade will NOT upgrade existing lists. 
You need to do that manually (there was a change to 
templates/subscribe.html in the current CVS, for instance)

here's a quick way to figure out if your list pages need to be upgraded.

1) cd to ~mailman/lists

For each list, run:

2) diff -r <listname> ../templates/

that'll show you which files need to be updated, if any.

It's probably not a good idea to blindly update, either. Make sure 
you aren't deleting custom changes that might ahve been made, but 
it's a good idea to get the list pages into sync as you upgrade as 
well, or you might run into something that'll cause lots of wasted 
time and headscratching, because you know it was fixed....
