That's relevant.

Also, there is an UPGRADING document in the release distribution.

Basically to upgrade any Mailman version 2.1.5 or later, just configure
the release with the same options as the original configure and then
install over the old release. If upgrading from older than 2.1.18, there
is a new Python dependency to support the dmarc_moderation_action
feature. This requires that the dnspython package be available in the
configured Python.  ./configure will quit with an error message if it
doesn't find dnspython.  The package can be downloaded from
<http://www.dnspython.org/> or from the CheeseShop
<https://pypi.python.org/pypi/dnspython/> or installed with pip.
