[Mailman-Users] Problem with Date:-headers

If you look at the mailman-users user archive at 
http://mail.python.org/pipermail/mailman-users you will see clear evidence 
of a problem in posting date handling by pipermail.

In the current May 2003 archive, Jon Carnes <jonc at nc.rr.com> response to 
an original post from Stig Petterson <petterso at online.no> appears after 
Stig's post on the date index for the archive not before it. I believe this 
is caused by a bug in the pipermail archiver for which I have recently 
posted a patch for MM 2.1.2, see:


This may or may not be Stig's original problem but it is definitely a 
problem for lists where people from different time zones are posting and 
can give a false impression in the ordering of events on a list.
