In this case, patch  is the 2.1.7 post release bug fix patch from
and should be applied to 2.1.7 first, followed by application of 
which is the virtual hosting patch.

In this case, [A] is the same function as  in the case above, but
without first applying .
[B] is a separate patch from a different source and is on the
<http://nix.lauft.net/mailman/> site only for reference. It could be
applied instead of [A], not in addition.

Patch  should apply cleanly to the 2.1.7 release, and patch  on
top of that. If your 2.1.7 sources are different, then there is no
telling what may happen.

In fairness to Hans, this is a work in progress. You may find the
entire thread at
to be of interest.
