You absolutely should not edit the files in the templates/<language>/ 
directories. During a Mailman update the contents of default language 
directories will be overwritten and any changes will be lost. However, 
the site, host and list template directories are left intact during an 

Revised copies of templates from the templates/<language>/ directories 
should be placed in these list, virtual host or site specific 
directories which are searched in the following order:

# 1. the list-specific language directory
#    lists/<listname>/<language>
# 2. the domain-specific language directory
#    templates/<list.host_name>/<language>
# 3. the site-wide language directory
#    templates/site/<language>
# 4. the global default language directory
#    templates/<language>

Unfortunately, not all Mailman pages are fully generated from templates 
and some code hacking may be required for those pages, but typically 
this will affect all lists.
