You can set the default value for default_member_moderation for new
The default values for member_moderation_action and
member_moderation_notice are hard coded in Mailman/MailList.py to
'Hold' and empty respectively.

You can't add any setting to mm_cfg.py that isn't in Defaults.py.
Mailman won't see it. If it did look for it and it wasn't defined in
Defaults.py, it would produce an error.

You could change Mailman/MailList.py to use
mm_cfg.DEFAULT_MEMBER_MODERATION_NOTICE instead of the current hard
coded 0 and '', and then you could put them in mm_cfg.py.
Or you could put the two lines
member_moderation_action = 1
member_moderation_notice = "You do not have permission to post to this
list, Please contact the list owner with any issues"
in a file and run bin/config_list with this file as input on the new
