It's the list which password reminders and other periodic things are sent
out as.  You can override it with MAILMAN_SITE_LIST in your mm_cfg.py file
- but you still need a list for this.

Just make a new list called 'mailman' and it will all work (e.g. 'newlist
mailman mailman-owner at yoursite.com N-E-OPwd').

What I'm unsure about is what should be done with this list - should it be
configured in a certain way or whatever?  I guess it's just required so
Mailman can have a valid sending address and can capture bounces, etc. in
the usual way.
