For -owner just set what e-mail address you want in the second field
of each list's General Option page of the web admin GUI or set it
when you create the list from the command line.
My approach is to have a list called defadmin and have that as the
owner address for lists we do not have administered individually;
usually because none of the users associated with the list are either
interested in the task or competent to perform it. We then just
subscribe some lucky sys admins addresses to the defadmin list.
For -bounces aliases you could simply redefine the per list aliases
to whatever you want in your MTA aliases database. This alias
redefinition could be automated but beware; if you direct all the per-
list bounces to the same alias outside of Mailman you will lose
Mailman's automated bounce processing which you probably do not want
to do: see the Bounce Processing page of the web admin GUI.

See towards the end of this FAQ entry for a hack to manipulate the
Sender: header on outgoing messages:

See options under the heading "Reply-To: header munging" on the
General Option page of the web admin GUI.
