btw: The INSTALL document in your mailman build directory says:

     - Create the site password using:

         % $prefix/bin/mmsitepass <your-site-password>

       This password can be used anywhere that individual user or
       mailing list administrator passwords are required, giving the
       mailman site administrator the ability to adjust these things
       when necessary.

       You may also want to create a password for the site-wide "list
       creator" role (someone other than the site administrator who as
       privileges to create and remove lists through the web).  Use the
       -c option to mmsitepass to set this.

But I am sure you have been too busy to read that document.

I did not realise that using open software at no charge and with no charge 
for support had become compulsory. You have my sympathy at such an imposition.
