I would create one list and tweak it via the web interface to get it
the way I wanted and then write it's configuration to a file with the
bin/config_list Mailman command line tool.
Then I would create a shell or similar script to loop over the list
names and run the following
bin/newlist to create the list
bin/config_list to configure it from the file created above, and
bin/add_members to import the members from the list's <CR> delimited,
ascii email address file.
