Don't assume that I don't have the skills.   I have been building the linux os from source since long before most people even heard of the Internet.  I manage my time very carefully, and mailman is a very small part of what I do.  The newest version of mailman does not resolve any of the issues that I have  been expiriencing if you have read my posts.  I have implemented the security measures required using other means until such a time that they are resolved in mailman.
