Beginning in Mailman 2.1.7, if the post is multipart/alternative with
text/plain and text/html sub-parts. An approved: first body line will
be removed from both the text/plain and the text/html sub-parts. It
still will not be recognized or removed if the message is HTML only,
but if the first non-blank line of the first text/plain part is the
Approved: line it will be removed from that part and searched for and
removed from all other text/* parts.

I'm not sure what you're saying here. Is there a problem in the way the
Approved: line is removed from the HTML in the above described
multipart case?

Not currently without modifying the code.
