It doesn't appear that this has been answered. Here you go:

	% su
	% cd <mailman installation dir>
	% python -i bin/withlist -l mylist
	>>> m.admin_member_chunksize = 100
	>>> m.Save()
	>>> <press Ctrl-D to exit>
	% exit

You are simply modifying the values in the object representing your
list. To find out what values you can change, what functions there are,
et cetera, look in Mailman/MailList.py.

I tried adding this to the FAQ, but it apparently requires a password
which you get by joining some other web page: 'At the moment, only
PSA members will be told the password. This is a good time to join
the PSA! See the PSA home page.' The provided link goes somewhere
that doesn't mention anything about joining/subscribing, too busy to
look further.
