Why not 2.1.20?

Mailman's character set for Finnish is iso-8859-1. All templates and the
mailman.po message catalog should be iso-8859-1 encoded. This has not
changed in the source distribution. I don't know what changes there
might be in the Debian package that would affect this, but I don't see
why there would be any.
You might want to refer to the FAQ article at
<http://wiki.list.org/x/17891606> and consider upgrading from source.
Note that the head of the branch at
<https://code.launchpad.net/~mailman-coders/mailman/2.1> is quite stable
and is what we are running for all the @python.org lists. See
changes since 2.1.20.
Perhaps there is something in the your web server that is overriding the
charset specified in the META tag in Mailman's web pages?
