Description:
After the python 2.6 update, mailman stopped working. when i try to "/etc/rc.d/mailman start" it gives FAIL.
so i decided to run /home/mailman/bin/mailmanctl and it produced this output:

/home/mailman/Mailman/Utils.py:32: DeprecationWarning: the sha module is deprecated; use the hashlib module instead
import sha
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "./mailmanctl", line 110, in <module>

import email.message

please pay attention to /tmp/pkg path. Is it a package problem?

I found this where a python2.6 patch is discussed but didn't find the patch commited yet: http://www.nabble.com/Mailman-2.1.x-%2B--Python-2.6---td20268337.html

Found a patch that is supposed to fix the problem (http://cvs.pld-linux.org/cgi-bin/cvsweb.cgi/SOURCES/mailman-python2.6.patch) but testing showed otherwise.

Same here.

Having the same problem here. Can't understand how a package goes mainstream, fails, and no replacements are published in 15 days :(

https://bugs.launchpad.net/mailman/+bug/293178 you can follow this link.
By the way, branch[1] works partially (delivering is OK, but archiving doesnt work).

Can people test if this package fixes the problems? It seems to be better from my limited testing but I don't have an actual mailman setup to work with.

This package completely solved my problem. I've tested it and it works great.

i had to do makepkg --asroot, because of a PAM problem, but it doesnt matter as i think.

Thank you very much Allan. You've saved my life :P
