Summary: INSTALL is too terse about site-wide list

Initial Comment:
The INSTALL file is too terse about the purpose of the 
site-wide mailing list.

See:

http://mail.python.org/pipermail/mailman-users/2003-
March/027179.html

I recommend adding something like this to the end of 
the bullet that starts 'Create a "site-wide" mailing list.':

"""Errors and warnings generated by Mailman itself will 
be sent to the site-wide mailing list, so the first thing 
you probably want to do is make this list private.  Your 
site administrators should probably be the only ones 
subscribed to this list."""

Of course, I'm new to Mailman, so I don't know whether 
the above is true or useful.  But I as is, the INSTALL file 
provides very little context for the purpose of the site-
wide list.

Thanks,

// mark
