[Mailman-Users] ignoring mm_cfg.py

The problem with my web interface is indeed the RewriteRule:

RewriteCond %{SERVER_PORT} ^80$
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ https://%{HTTP_HOST}$1 [R]

which is eliminating the post data, though I don't really understand why 
since I thought the $1 made sure that would be maintained.  I tried 
following FAQ #4.27 as you specified but had no luck.  Item #1 results 
in a limit being reached on the number of redirects, while item #2 seems 
to have no effect.  That is, putting the following into the mm_cfg.py file:
DEFAULT_URL_PATTERN = 'https://%s/mailman/'
and restarting mailman seems to do nothing since the pages still 
initially send to http instead of https.  Finally, item #3 didn't fix 
things either. 

Many of the items in the FAQ pages are not explained very well, or 
perhaps have a more advance audience in mind I should say.  For example, 
what does the '%s' do above?  Also, FAQ 4.29 has several items which end 
in '.tld'.  What's that?  I guess these pages are really intended for 
more expert users, not the casual kind like myself.  Thanks for your help.
