[Mailman-Users] Some basic how-to questions

First off, I'm not sure if any of those are possible via the web 
interface.  I don't think that's really what the interface was designed 
for.  Someone can correct me if I'm wrong.

Renaming a list is a royal pain in the ass.  There's some documentation 
on the Mailman website about it, though it warns that there's no really 
safe way to do this.  And it seems to me that 2) and 3) are going to do 
the same thing.  However, for #2 you might take a look at 
bin/config_list.  As far as deleting a list, it's easy to do using the 
bin/rmlist.  Generally, if you're doing administration for a bunch of 
lists, I've found it much easier to work with the command line utilities 
that ship with Mailman.  Hope this helps a little bit.
