Edit the template directly and put it in the lists/listname directory.
See the FAQ at http://www.python.org/cgi-bin/faqw-mm.py article 4.48.
The template for the welcome message is subscribeack.txt.

Did you look at the FAQ?
Did you look at the archives of the mailman-users at python.org list? This
comes up all the time there.
archives -> http://mail.python.org/pipermail/mailman-users/
searchable -> http://www.mail-archive.com/mailman-users%40python.org/
If you didn't find these resources, is there something that could be
added/changed to make them more obvious?
