i am still struggling to find out what caused the error. after all
i have just added one line to Default.py. why should it complain
about the version number? i would appreciate it if someone could
give me some pointers.
anyway, this would be a nice feature in mailman. i hope it will no
longer be a patch in the next version.
Thus spake Saurav Pathak:
+ Thus spake Richard Barrett:
+ + As it stands, the patch has to be applied to the Mailman source
+ + distribution and there are only versions for MM 2.1.2 and MM 2.1.3
+ + That said, it will probably work with earlier versions of MM 2.1 or can
+ + be trivially adapted to work with them. The code changes themselves are
+ + really quite small and could be added by hand to an installed system if
+ + you really wanted to.
+ thanks for the patch. i added the patch by hand, but got the
+ following error while trying to access the admin webpage:
+ Bug in Mailman version <undetermined>
+ We're sorry, we hit a bug!
+ If you would like to help us identify the problem, please email a

+ i donot understand why i should be getting this.
+ instead of the patches in all the files, I decided to add it in the
