It probably depends on exactly how you installed Mailman (package,
source, ??) and if you have any patches to your Mailman.

If you do everything as recommended, i.e. never change Defaults.py but
make your changes in mm_cfg.py; don't edit templates but create
site/domain/list specific versions via the web admin UI or as described
in the FAQ at <http://wiki.list.org/x/4030605>, an upgrade shouldn't
break Mailman, but you also need to be aware of what an upgrade might do
to the Mailman related things in the web server and MTA.
