Hello,

I have installed mailman 2.1.9.5 and now upgraded to 2.1.10 and see the
following in mailman's error log.

I will appreciate if you could help me deal with it. Thank you!

    Well, we've never shipped a version number 2.1.9.5, so that tells me you're
    probably using a binary packaged version provided by some other source.
    Maybe your OS vendor, maybe someone else.

    However, since we don't know what they may have done to the code that they
    have packaged and shipped to you, we can't really tell you anything about
    how things may now act if you've applied some sort of patch or something
    from our code to try to bring you up to date.

    If you want to completely de-install the old version and then re-install
    from our tarball, I would expect that should work, but I won't give you any
    guarantees.


    Your first step for resolving all these problems should be to contact your
    vendor who provided the previous binary package version you were using, and
    get assistance from them.

    A description of this issue along with the patch to fix it is at
    <http://mail.python.org/pipermail/mailman-users/2008-April/061381.html>,
    <http://mail.python.org/pipermail/mailman-announce/2008-April/000111.html>,
    and
    <http://mail.python.org/pipermail/mailman-developers/2008-April/020162.html>.

    This is the major reason that there will be a 'patch' release soon.

    One more thing. You should apply the patch and restart Mailman and then
    use bin/unshunt to requeue the shunted messages because they are email
    subscribe requests you probably don't want to loose.

    Barry - sorry to have misinformed. I meant 2.1.9_5. Installed from ports
    on FreeBSD 7.0-Release.

    Thank you Mark - this has solved the issue!
