I certainly don't recall ever hearing of "Section 508 Compliance" 
before, and using search engines looking for the term "Section 508 
Compliance" on the python.org site, I don't come up with any hits at 

Searching a bit wider, I do come up with a couple of hits for 
"Section 508" on the Mailman-related mailing lists, see 
and search for "Section 508" on the page.

Well, at least some of the Mailman developers have at least heard of 
it, but beyond the information found in the archives mentioned above, 
I'm not sure that anyone has any new information.

Beyond that, you could always file a Request For Enhancement at the 
Mailman RFE page on SourceForge (see 
<http://sourceforge.net/tracker/?group_id=103&atid=350103>), or 
perhaps do some development of your own (or get someone else to do 
the development for you) and then contribute that work back to the 
project through the Mailman Patch page on SourceForge (see
