[Bug 1835339] [NEW] Variables in "On demand password reminder" message do not work

Public bug reported:

Dear MailMen,

The "On demand password reminder" message is configurable in the "Edit
the public HTML pages and text files" menu item, as is the "Welcome
email text file" message.

However, while the variables/parameters %(listname)s, %(user)s and
%(password)s can be used in the "On demand password reminder" message,
the variables/parameters %(welcome)s, %(real_name)s, %(host_name)s,
%(optionsurl)s do NOT work.

When we send out a password reminder to our many users, we would like to
include more information, e.g.:

- A link to where they can change their list options, which needs %(optionsurl)s
- A link to where the list archive is, which needs %(host_name)s and %(real_name)s
- The e-mail address of the list, which also needs %(host_name)s and %(real_name)s
- etc.

Can you enable these variables/parameters so that we can easily
customise and configure these messages?

PS: It would be great to have a list of all the variables/parameters that can be used in mailman messages!

Many thanks,

eHWS Team
