There is no 'manpage' per se for any of Mailman's bin/ commands, but
they all have a -h/--help option.

If this list has it's web_page_url based on DEFAULT_URL_HOST and its
host_name different from DEFAULT_EMAIL_HOST, then what you did is the
best you can do with fix_url.

Run bin/fix_url.py (rather than running bin/withlist -r fix_url ...) to
see the help for fix_url.
