Description of problem:
There are a lot of useful features in Mailman 2.1, some of which may cure
existing bugs already logged on bugzilla. Can you let me know when it will be
available for Red Hat 7.2?
Python will need to be upgraded from the current 1.5.2-35 to 2.1.3 for this to
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Created attachment 90741 [details]
Source package for patched mailman with plain text email patch
Created attachment 90742 [details]
Binary package for patched mailman with plain text email patch
I've added the source and binary packages that I've built (unsigned as I
haven't quite figured that bit out yet!) to use a patch that allows you to
force plaintext email to your lists.
I notice that Phoebe has Mailman 2.1, so I'd assume that this will come with
Red Hat 9.0 too.
I haven't had a chance to look at the attachments yet, but I assume you've added
a patch and want that patch propagated into future packages. If thats the case
then since this bug is closed it will mean it will get lost. The issue and fix
probably belongs in its own bug report not tied to 7.1.
Sorry, I forgot to say that I've put the patch here as it is useful for any
RedHat 7.2 users who want to have mailman's newer feature of plain text only
email lists. This comes with 2.1, so this patch doesn't need to be rolled into
later versions. The patch itself comes from the Sourceforge site for mailman
anyway (so I can't take any credit for that).
I've just realised I forgot to change the changelog in this package...
