We just moved abotu 150 lists to Mailman, and overall we're loving it (see 
www.uua.org/mailman/listinfo for the lists). However, our subscribers are 
consistently confused by the web pages and messages that Mailman sends. For 
the next version, would you be open to a redesign of the default pages that 
subscribers see? I know we can change them, but I think that Mailman should 
ship with clearer default pages.

For example, the listinfo page (e.g., 
<http://mail.python.org/mailman/listinfo/mailman-users>) doesn't have a 
heading "How to Unsubscribe," which is one of the two main reasons that 
people go there. Unsubscription info is there, but it's buried at the 
bottom of the page.
