As I have written on this forum before, the Debian/Ubuntu package
for Mailman has a large number of patches.  One I know is definitely
wrong.  Most of the others had no documentation, so I could not
determine what the patch was doing.  For three security patches,
two matched the SourceForge source, and one did not.  As I could not
determine exactly what I would be running, I decided to build my
own Mailman package from the SourceForge source.  The only patch
I kept was one that places file in proper libraries for Ubuntu/Debian.
I can provide details for anyone who is interested.
