Mailman is an open source project supported by the community on a
volunteer basis. Timelines can't be predicted.

You can't 'forward' the edited message as you've discovered. You have
to 'redirect'/'resend'/'bounce' it back to the list. If your regular
MUA/mail client doesn't support this, you might consider installing
Mutt for this purpose.
Also, if you have access to a 'sendmail' command anywhere, you can use
the method mentioned in the note at the end of the FAQ article.

No. There is no email interface for changing the list configuration or
doing most other administrator tasks.
