Has anyone upgraded to 2.1.9 successfully? I tried upgrading as follows:

./configure with same params as my release.

make install starts ok and ends ok but has one error:

Creating architecture independent directories...
chmod o-r /fs/mailman2/archives/private
for p in email-2.5.8 JapaneseCodecs-1.4.11 KoreanCodecs-2.0.5; \
do \
     gunzip -c ./$p.tar.gz | (cd . ; tar xf -); \
     (cd ./$p ; umask 02 ; PYTHONPATH=/fs/mailman2/pythonlib /usr/local/bin/pytho
n setup.py --quiet install --install-lib /fs/mailman2/pythonlib --install-pureli
b /fs/mailman2/pythonlib --install-data /fs/mailman2/pythonlib); \
   File "/fs/mailman2/pythonlib/email/_compat22.py", line 31
     yield self
SyntaxError: invalid syntax

Then it updates the lists but with each one, it says:

     Looks like you have a really recent CVS installation...
     you're either one brave soul, or you already ran me

Finally, restarting sendmail, apache and mailman, if I try to login
from the webpage, I get a failure. Traceback shows:

Thank goodness for backups.  Any ideas?
