	Interesting.  At ecartis.org, I find the following:

| Official web site for the Ecartis (formerly Listar) Modular
| Listserver/Mailing List Manager
| Welcome to the official homepage for the Ecartis Listserver / Mailing
| List Manager.  Ecartis is a open-source (GNU License) software package
| that administers mailing lists (similar to Majordomo and Listserv).

	So, I stand corrected.

	That said, ecartis (formerly Listar) appears to have a much 
larger development team than Mailman, and has certainly been around a 
lot longer (I remember Listar being a pretty full-featured MLM back 
in the late 90s).

	Give Mailman the same kind of development resources, and maybe we 
can reasonably hope to take over all their best features, at some 
point in the hopefully not-too-distant future.

	Until then, Mailman has had a different development focus than 
ecartis, and unless something fairly radical changes, it will 
probably always have a different feature set that does not completely 
overlap.  You will need to decide which features are most important 
to you, and then make your choice of MLM based on that decision.
