Yes and no. You can set any list attribute via input to config_list.
For example your input file could contain
mlist.password = 'somevalue'
for the admin password, or
mlist.mod_password = 'somevalue'
for the moderator password. The problem is that somevalue is not the
plain text password. It is the encrypted password. Thus, you need to
put the following 3 lines in the input to config_list
mlist.password = sha.new('newpassword').hexdigest()
The third line isn't really necessary, but it avoids a warning
'attribute "sha" ignored' that occurs because of the way config_list
handles its input file. If you want to set the moderator password,
just replace mlist.password with mlist.mod_password.
