I can't answer your question directly, but if you don't find the rpms
you are looking for, it's not very difficult to build your own.  Just
grab the latest mailman source rpm for CentOS or RHEL and update the
spec file to build mailman 2.1.8 instead of 2.1.5.

You'll want to make a few small tweaks, like removing patches for the
security issues that have been fixed in mailman between 2.1.5 and
2.1.8 as well as update the python Requires: from 2.2 to 2.3 (I
believe that's what mailman now requires).

The last one isn't strictly necessary as it appears that CentOS 4.3
includes python 2.3 already, but it will help if you decide later to
try and rebuild your source rpm for another system with an older
