Sourceforge has 10,000+ mailman lists :-)

I turned off the list of all list options though:

I also turned off the list command that you can send by mail.

In both cases it's because mailman gets way too slow when it has to generate
that list  of lists, and  it's also to  discourage spammers to  do something
evil with the list of lists.

Run newlist from a shell script and then run add_members -n file listname
in a shell loop.
