FWIW, the Red Hat packages should have all of the security holes
backported, so users of those packages should need to upgrade just to
be secure.  I don't run any RHEL systems though, so I can't say that
I've looked over the packages carefully (and even if I had, not many
people have a reason to take my word for the security issues being
fixed :).

I'd still agree that anyone running mailman in production should look
into updating their installations to get the improvements that have
come along since 2.1.5.
