In general, use grep to answer questions like this. In this case

grep -r GetMailmanFooter Mailman/*

will produce among other output

HTMLFormatter.py:    def GetMailmanFooter(self):

Yes and no. Normally, if the .py file is newer than the .pyc, python
will automatically compile the .py file and update the .pyc (compiled)
file. If python has been run with the -O (optimize) option, it will do
the same with the .pyo file. If python has not been run with -O, it
ignores the .pyo file.

In short, you don't have to be concerned about this.
