These questions are probably best asked on mailman-developers, but
I'll answer them here anyway...

There are currently four addresses that every list has, and their
purposes are now documented in the big comment at the top of
cron/qrunner. For a list called `listname', the addresses are:
listname - postings to the list
listname-request - passes only through the email command processor
listname-admin - passes through the bounce processor, but if no bounces
are detected, the message is forwarded to the list
listname-owner - goes directly to the list owners without passing
through the bounce processor.
Note: See cron/qrunner for a diagram showing the complete flow of
messages through the system. Also, I've played with listname-join and
listname-leave addresses, so it's possible something like this will
make it into 2.1.
