The FAQ currently says:
Finally, if your MTA uses aliases for mailman lists rather than
some process that automatically understands list names from the
contents of the lists/ directory, you will have to update your
aliases. If you do this manually, edit your aliases to change
'oldlist' to 'newlist' (a total of 2 changes per alias for 10
aliases), and then run 'newaliases' or whatever command rebuilds
your alias database. It you have Postfix/Mailman integration,
just run bin/genaliases.
If you think this is somehow inadequate or not prominent enough, it's a
wiki. Feel free to edit it.
