mailman at domain.com is the site list for your mailman installation. It
is required that you have this list. In addition to being mentioned on
listinfo pages as you quote above, it is also the 'source' of password
reminders and certain other Mailman generated messages. This list
exists at your site or Mailman wouldn't run. You can see it's listinfo
page at something like <http:/domain.com/mailman/listinfo/mailman> and
you can administer it at <http:/domain.com/mailman/admin/mailman>
although at least initially, you'll probably need the site password to
log in.

The owner of this list should be set to the Mailman site administrator
who should also be a member of the list.
