I'm not sure what comment you are looking at, but if you go to
and download the rev 7694 Privacy.py, you should be able to put that
in place of your Privacy.py and be OK.

Things you need to be aware of are:

1) This will add a text box and help for nonmember_rejection_notice to
Privacy options...->Sender filters, but this won't work. You can add
text, but the code to use it isn't there.

2) This will add the note
             Note that headers are collected from all the attachments
             (except for the mailman administrivia message) and
             matched against the regular expressions. With this feature,
             you can effectively sort out messages with dangerous file
             types or file name extensions.
to the help for header_filter_rules, but this will not be true as in
2.1.5, the subpart headers weren't examined.
