You can do this from the command line with bin/config_list

bin/config_list --help

for help.

bin/config_list -o filename listname

To see the output from the existing list 'listname' which will show you
the form of the required input. Only attributes you want to change
need be in the input file.

>2) I'm used to lists (using some lists from another sites) configured in such a way, so when I press "Reply" button in my e-mail client in the "To" line there is the "list e-mail address" an not only e-mail of the person who's wrote this mail. In the default configuration I believe I have to push "Reply All" button to send the reply to the list, and the system (of mailman) knows to send this reply only once to the person who's wrote this original message (correct me if I wrong).

Actually, it's up to the user whether or not to receive a post from the
list if he/she is a direct addressee, but the default is as you say.

Set reply_goes_to_list to "This list"
