A few things survive upgrades. mm_cfg.py is not changed in an upgrade
and list specific templates in lists/LISTNAME/LC/, domain specific
templates in templates/DOMAIN/ and sitewide templates in templates/site/
are not changed.

Any modified modules in the Mailman/ directory will be replaced in an
upgrade. Therefore, best practice is to keep all your local mods in
patch files and reapply the patches following an upgrade.
