The subversion trunk is not currently usable. It is undergoing a major
change in "logging" which is incomplete, plus other changes. I'm a bit
confused by the errors you report since the web page bug that I'm
aware of was fixed in subversion before the ReopenableFileHandler
class was added to loginit.py. What is in the error log from the web
page bug?

If you want to install from source, the best bet is to get the 2.1.8
tarball. You can also get the subversion Release_2_1-maint branch, but
with the exception of the addition of the Vietnamese translation, this
is the same as 2.1.8.

Python 2.3 will be the minimum for Mailman 2.2, so you should be OK
