[Mailman-Users] Creating a list of approved senders

There was a patch sent to the list about a year ago that allowed
one to use addresses of the form +listname at our.host as automatically
approved addresses.  We applied it to our Mailman 2.1.1 here at the
U of Utah School of Computing.  It is real handy for professors to
add the teaching assistant list as an approved poster for the class
list.  Basically the patch changes one section of code in Maillist.py
so that if a +listname is found, it checks the membership of that list
to see if the sender is a member.

We don't know yet if the patch will work with Mailman 2.1.4, I'll be
testing it RealSoonNow.

Now, all I have to do is remember where I put the patch source....
