Greetings Mark,

	I'm running mailman-2.1.9, I read the FAQ, and I followed your
directions however nothing happens.  The machine just sits there until I
^C out of it.

wal9100# cd Mailman

wal9100# pwd

wal9100# ls -l /usr/local/mailman/patch
total 3
-rw-r--r--   1 root     mailman      2551 Dec 15 21:09 listinclusion.patch

wal9100# patch -p2 /usr/local/mailman/patch/listinclusion.patch

and nothing happens.

wal9100# patch -v
patch 2.5.4
