Thanks for the update!
I have a question... I currently run mailman as installed

> 2.1.4 (31-Dec-2003)
> - Close some cross-site scripting vulnerabilities in
> the admin pages
> - New languages: Catalan, Croatian, Romanian,
> - New mm_cfg.py/Defaults.py variable PUBLIC_MBOX which
> allows the site
> administrator to disable public access to all the
> raw list mbox files
> (this is not a per-list configuration).
> - Expanded header filter rules under Privacy -> Spam

> header, with specific
> actions tied to those matches.
> - Rework the SMTP error handling in SMTPDirect.py to
> avoid scoring bounces
> for all recipients when a permanent error code is
> returned by the mail
> server (e.g. because of content restrictions).
> - Promoted SYNC_AFTER_WRITE to a Default.py/mm_cfg.py
> variable and
> make it control syncing on the config.pck file.
> Also, we always flush
> and sync message files.
> - Reduce archive bloat by not storing the HTML body of
> Article objects in
> the Pipermail database. A new script bin/rb-archfix
> was added to clean
> up older archives.
> - Proper RFC quoting for List-ID descriptions.
> - PKGDIR can be passed to the make command in order to
> specify a different
> directory to unpack the distutils packages in misc.
