1.77.1. RHBA-2010:0726: bug fix update
An updated mailman package that fixes various bugs is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.
Mailman is a program used to help manage email discussion lists.
This updated mailman package includes fixes for the following bugs:
* Previously, the /etc/smrsh/mailman symbolic link used an absolute path, which may have not work properly in a chroot environment. This error has been fixed, and the symbolic link now uses a relative path. ( BZ#290661)
* When an email could not be parsed, it may have been lost and the remaining messages may have been stuck in the queue. With this update, such problematic messages are preserved, and the message queue is processed as expected. ( BZ#453377)
* If the original Cc: field contained an address that spanned across multiple lines, mailman was not able to parse it correctly, causing the resulting address to be invalid. This error has been fixed, and email addresses are now parsed as expected. ( BZ#461707)
* When changing an email address using the web interface, confirming the change may have caused the subscribed user to be presented with a traceback error. This has been corrected, and an informative message is now displayed instead. ( BZ#515157)
* In accordance with current guidelines, all Python executables have been updated to use "#!/usr/bin/python" instead of "#!/usr/bin/env python". ( BZ#521888)
Users are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which resolves these issues.
