I don't disagree. I thought Barry did send out a warning that the list 
was going to 2.1.

On the other hand, people have to remember this list is about mailman, 
so testing mailman on it is a necessary evil, and things are going to 
happen that, ahem, aren't always what's planned. The joy of beta code 
is even if you do get all the warnings, stuff's going to change in ways 
that you may not be ready for (because it might be broken...)
