Description Joseph Tate 2002-10-11 12:35:17 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.0) Gecko/20020606

Description of problem:
It appears that the hostname on the listinfo page is not using the value stored
in the mm_cfg.py file as it is being used on the admin page.  The listinfo page
seems to be using the hostname from the requesting url.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): mailman-2.0.13-1

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install Mailman
2.Setup the web access
3.Visit http://<host>/mailman/listinfo and http://<host>/mailman/admin noting
the differences in the header.

Actual Results:  The mailman/admin page matches the value in the mm_cfg.py file:
localhost.localdomain.  The mailman/listinfo page matches the calling url. 
Change mm_cfg.py, and only the admin page changes to match.

Expected Results:  mailman/admin and mailman/listinfo should both use
%DEFAULT_HOST_NAME from mm_cfg.py.

Changing to a canonical name is more a web server config item.
Seems working fine with the current rpm to me, so closing this here.
