OK, that makes some sense to keep it hush-hush for a while.  HOWEVER, 
what is the process for notifying Mailman admins of temporary 
workarounds for this and any other situation?  I honestly don't want to 
wait for an official patch if there is an interim solution.

I wouldn't have known of this issue if Diana hadn't of mentioned it here 
first.  Thank you Diana for at least bringing this issue to my attention.

Brad, I can assume that many many other admins will want to know of 
"next-steps" for this problem.  What should we do to make sure we are 
kept in the loop if it isn't discussed/relayed somehow?
