We're still using Mailman 2.0beta6 and it's been fine for out announce-only 
list. We're also running Redhat 6.1.

But we're looking to upgrade to Redhat 7.3 or 8.0, and also to a newer 
mailman, so I've got some questions that I hope some of the listmembers can 

1. Just how close to being released is Mailman 2.1? It seems like it's been 

2. Any difficulties with Mailman 2.1 when running Redhat 7.3 or 8.0? Can it 
be installed on RH6.1 (is a newer python required?) We might get to Mailman 
before we get to the OS upgrade.

3. Are there/will there be ways to minimize all those headers? Yes, I've 
heard why they're there, but IMHO some are not necessary and they take up a 
lot of room.

4. Will subscribers be able to ubsubscribe without passwords? This is the 
largest complaint we get from subscribers.

5. How difficult is installation and are there compatability problems with 
years of existing archives?

Thanks for any insights.
