A bit more explanation of what's going on:

About a week and a half ago, I upgraded the operating system from Ubuntu 
Intrepid Ibis to Jaunty Jackalope.

I had been using Mailman 2.1.9 under Python 2.5.x on the system before 
the upgrade.  Now, I'm running Ubuntu Jaunty Jackalope which now 
packages Python 2.6.x as its default Python interpreter.  As a result, 
it was dying on one of the modules (specific-hashing algorithms purpose 
modules being deprecated in favor of one unified module).  Rather than 
mucking around and hand-installing ANOTHER version of Mailman (which was 
giving me fits), I gave up and just installed the packaged one instead 

Now that everything is in place, thing should be working again as they 
should.  If anyone has any trouble or sees anything strange, please 
notify Andy or me know ASAP.

Thanks for bearing with me!
