This should be doable with a simple RewriteRule.
RewriteRule ^/foo-list$ /mailman/listinfo/foo-list
If you have many lists whose names all end in "-list":
RewriteRule ^/([^/]*)-list$ /mailman/listinfo/$1-list
If you have a couple of lists with variable names:
RewriteRule ^/(foo-list|bar-devel|qux-users)$ /mailman/listinfo/$1
You get the idea (I hope). These are all completely untested and off
the top of my head.
