Thanks. I think I got it to work. For other newbies like me who might be 
browsing the list archives, here are some instructions for applying the 

1. Download the patch to your mailman directory:

cd /usr/local/mailman/
http://sourceforge.net/tracker/download.php\?group_id=103\&atid=300103\&file_id=138283\&aid=1220144 - 
O listinclusion.patch

2. Apply the patch:

patch -p1 < listinclusion.patch

3. Restart mailman:

/etc/init.d/mailman restart

I don't think it works unless you do step 3 which confused me for a bit.
