Mailman is an excellent solution for our use here, however, I have 
two questions regarding two levels of disaster: Loss of List admin 
password, Server Crash.

Maybe my questions are self-explanatory now, but here goes anyway: if 
the manager of a particular list loses the admin password for that 
list, how can I, as the site administrator, regenerate one?

And, when setting up Mailman there was a small amount of compilation 
work. To transfer the files from a backup onto another server, do I 
just need to transfer the entire file structure of the install 
location (i.e. /home/mailman) ?
