This will be easier in Mailman 3. Currently, you need to get a list
configured as you like and save it's configuration with

bin/config_list -o file LISTNAME

Then you may want to edit file to remove some list specific things like
owner, moderator, description, info and subject_prefix. This then
becomes your template which you can apply to other lists with

bin/config_list -i file OTHERLISTNAME
