[Mailman-Users] Upgrading innd when using mailman email gateways

I've got a Red Hat 6.2 server running innd 2.2.x and I need to upgrade it to
the current 2.3.x release. This innd server also is the target for several
mailman news2mail / mail2news mailing list gateways.

I'm looking for advice on how to handle this best. Here are my current

1) Disable mailman news gateway cron jobs
2) Upgrade innd as documented in innd release notes.
3) Enable mailman news gateway cron jobs again

I'm concerned about the possibility that innd may do something such as change
article ids or what not which would cause mailman to 'catchup' with the news
group and spam the mailing lists with 90 days of old emails.

Any tips or thoughts on things I should watch out for would be very welcome.
