I suspect this is some issue with the particular SuSE Mailman package
and patch level you installed. In the base source distribution of
Mailman 2.1.5, the
change_options(mlist, category, subcat, cgidata, doc)
is at line 175, but
whence='admin mass sub')
is at lines 1335-1337, not 1337-1339 (note I removed a level of
indentation in hopes the above wouldn't wrap).
The real question is what do you have for the definition of
ApprovedAddMember in Mailman/MailList.py? The base has at lines 897-898
def ApprovedAddMember(self, userdesc, ack=None, admin_notif=None,
The whence= argument got added between 2.1.3 and 2.1.4 which seems to
say that your Mailman/MailList.py is older than 2.1.4.
Either this is some SuSE problem or you have residue of your old
version, some of which is being used.
