That means that it was not able to load either your config.pck or
config.pck.last files, and it is trying to fall back to the config.db
(or config.db.last) as last resorts. (In fact your Mailman logs/error
log should be telling you about this file corruption.) Your easiest
fix would be to replace the list configuration with a backup from
before the server problems.

This is a separate problem. You are missing the site list (which as
the error message says, is normally called 'mailman' unless you have
renamed it in your mm_cfg file).

Python loops can have else: clauses that are executed if the loop
terminates normally (no break, return, or uncaught exceptions).
Python's clear block structure makes that very easy to read. :-)
