Upgrading is very straightforward. It consists of downloading and
unpacking the distribution and running 'configure', 'make', and 'make
install'. It is described in fairly complete detail in the UPGRADING
file that is in the top level directory in the distribution. Also see
section 3 of the installation manual at
admin/www/mailman-install/node6.html or
admin/www/mailman-install.(pdf|ps|txt) in the distribition.

In this case, there are a few important errors in the 2.1.7 release
which are fixed by the patch at

This should be applied with

patch -p0 < this_patch

in the unpack directory before 'make install'. Or, you can wait for
2.1.8 which should be available within the month and fixes these and a
few other issues.
