It has been implemented on the 2.2 branch which is not yet released, so
yes, you need to apply the patch to 2.1.12 if you need the

Also, rather than incrementing Version.DATA_FILE_VERSION further and
setting yourself up for this kind of problem again, you could leave it
at 97 and run the following (after applying the auto approval patch)
to make sure all lists get updated

echo "mlist.data_version = 96" >$f
for list in `/path/to/bin/list_lists --bare`; do
  /path/to/bin/config_list -i $f $list
rm $f

I don't intend to apply the patch to the 2.1 (stable) branch because of
i18n considerations.
