Anywhere that a password is required the site password can be
entered.  So providing that you have set it, go one of the
administative pages for you list can scroll to the bottom where the
list password can be chaned.  Enter the site password as the
old password and set a new one and then submit the page.

See above

Mailman is undergoing development.  If you look on the TODO list,
you will see that writing improved documentation is there.  At the
moment use the FAQ.
