I'm using Mailman 2.1.4 on Debian Woody (a Backport from backports.org)

To turn off those automatic "held for approval"-messages for any 
forthcoming new lists on my server, I tried to change the default value 
in mm_cfg.py:
Without success.

The www-interface provides this option in:
Generell options / respond_to_post_requests (Yes/No)
changing the value here works fine.

I know, the value is hardcoded in /usr/lib/mailman/Mailman/MailList.py
Line 289:
self.respond_to_post_requests = 1

A comment in Line 288 sais:
# This stuff is configurable
but how?

What do I have to add in my mm_cfg.py to change this value?
