Hi Jeff,

I'm running Woody on the server.  I've also installed Mailman 2.1.5,
with Sendmail.  My version of Python is 2.2.1-4.3.  Because I use
Sendmail rather that Exim, I couldn't get a working list server
using .deb files.  So, I installed Python using aptitude and then
installed Mailman from source in /usr/local/mailman.  It works
wonderfully.  No need to go to a Python backport.
