Thanks for the sample code. If I knew more about python I'd try and fix it
myself. (Learning python is on my "list of things to do", I just haven't
gotten there yet.) It does tend to hose other mailman functionality, so if
you don't want to test it on a production mailman box, let me know. I'm in
the process of setting up my first list so mailman hasn't gone live yet and
I'd be happy to test it.

I was thinking ~/mailman/templates/subscribeack.[list-name].txt might be a

Then don't spend a lot of time on it, unless you've nothing better to
do. ;-) It'd be nice to have, but I can probably make my earlier
suggestion re: short subscribeack.txt file and add the rest to the "list
specific text prepended..." box on the general options page. AFAIK, you
can't include html tags though, which could be a drawback.
