FAQ
Hi guys
I had everything up and running for mailman untill I encountered this
problem yesterday. I am trying to access the admin pages for one of the
lists that I created. It prompts me for a password and then I enter the
admin password for that list and then it gives me the error:
Bug in Mailman version 2.0.12

We're sorry, we hit a bug!
Please inform the webmaster for this site of this problem. Printing of
traceback and other system information has been explicitly inhibited, but
the webmaster can find this information in the Mailman error logs.

When I look at the error log I see the following error:
Type Error:not enough arguments for format string and the detailed log is
below.

    It looks to me that you have edited one of the adm pages for the problem
    list, or one in $prefix/templates and left out, problably, one of the 's'
    after one of the %(xxx) or maybe you have left completely one of them out,
    or, another one I have encountered, if that you have added HTML thingies
    with percents, then, you have to enter %%, for example width=%%10.
    Hope this helps.
