The standard distributed GNU Mailman mmsitepass contains the following
lines immediately after the copyright notice and the documentation:

import sys
import getpass
import getopt

import paths
from Mailman import Utils
from Mailman.i18n import _

Yours is apparently missing the last of these and who knows what else.
