Log Message:
Update to 2.1.6. Changes (note: the fix for CAN-2005-0202 was already in
pkgsrc as patches/patch-ai):


    - Added the ability for Mailman generated passwords (both member and list
      admin) to be more cryptographically secure.  See new configuration
      ADMIN_PASSWORD_LENGTH.  Also added a new bin/withlist script called which can be used to reset all member passwords.  Passwords
      generated by Mailman are now 8 characters by default for members, and 10
      characters for list administrators.

    - A potential cross-site scripting hole in the driver script has been
      closed.  Thanks to Florian Weimer for its discovery.  Also, turn
      STEALTH_MODE on by default.

    - Chinese languages are now supported.  They have been moved from 'big5'
      and 'gb' to 'zh_TW' and 'zh_CN' respectively for compliance to the IANA
      spec.  Note, however, that the character sets were changed from 'Big5'
      or 'GB2312' to 'UTF-8' to cope with the insufficient codecs support in
      Python 2.3 and earlier.  You may have to install Chinese capable codecs
      (like CJKCodecs) separately to handle the incoming messages which are in
      local charsets, or upgrade your Python to 2.4 or newer.

  Behavior or defaults changes

    - VERP_PROBES is disabled by default.

    - bin/withlist can be run without a list name, but only if -i is given.
      Also, withlist puts the directory it's found in at the end of sys.path,
      making it easier to run withlist scripts that live in $prefix/bin.

    - bin/newlist grew two new options: -u/--urlhost and -e/--emailhost which
      lets the user provide the web and email hostnames for the new mailing
      list.  This is a better way to specify the domain for the list, rather
      than the old 'mylist@hostname' syntax (which is still supported for
      backward compatibility, but deprecated).

    - Python 2.4 compatibility issue: time.strftime() became strict about the
      'day of year' range.  (1078482)

  New Features

    - New feature: automatic discards of held messages.  List owners can now
      set how many days to hold the messages in the moderator request queue.
      cron/checkdb will automatically discard old messages.  See the
      max_days_to_hold variable in the General Options and
      DEFAULT_MAX_DAYS_TO_HOLD in  This defaults to 0
      (i.e. disabled). (790494)

    - New feature: subject_prefix can be configured to include a sequence
      number which is taken from the post_id variable.  Also, the prefix is
      always put at the start of the subject, i.e. "[list-name] Re: original
      subject", if mm_cfg.OLD_STYLE_PREFIXING is set No.  The default style
      is "Re: [list-name]" if numbering is not set, for backward compatibility.
      If the list owner is using numbering feature by "%d" directive, the new
      style, "[list-name 123] Re:", is always used.
    - List owners can now cusomize the non-member rejection notice from
      admin/<listname>/privacy/sender page. (1107169)

    - Allow editing of the welcome message from the admin page (1085501).

    - List owners can now use Scrubber to get the attachments scrubbed (held
      in the web archive), if the site admin permits it in  New
      variables introduced are SCRUBBER_DONT_USE_ATTACHMENT_FILENAME and
      behavior.  (904850)


    - Most of the installation instructions have been moved to a latex
      document.  See admin/www/mailman-install/index.html for details.

  Bug fixes and other patches

    - Mail-to-news gateway now strips subject prefix off from a response
      by a mail user if news_prefix_subject_too is not set.

    - Date and Message-Id headers are added for digests. (1116952)
    - Improved mail address sanity check.  (1030228)
