Hello all,

I need to upgrade Mailman and am currently running version
2.0.11 on Debian woody/stable.  I have located a 'backported'
debian package (i.e. a 'deb' of a recent version of Mailman that
has been backported to the Debian stable tree) on backports.org
that is the current version 2.1.4.

Some time ago I did some research on upgrading Mailman to 2.1.x
and noticed that there seemed to be some 'gotchas', so I decided
to hold off for awhile.

My question:  is there anyone on this list running Debian who:
1.  Has done the same (or similar) upgrade as I am proposing
    above, who used the deb package from backports.org?  If so,
    how did it go - were there any unforeseen complications with
    the upgrade?
2.  Have done an upgrade from Mailman 2.0.x -> 2.1.x, using any
    method, who would be willing to advise me how 'seamless' the
    upgrade went?

Thanks in advance for your help,
