Many list settings have default values which can be set in mm_cfg.py.
See these settings and their documentation in Defaults.py. I think the
names of these settings all begin with DEFAULT_.

Alternatively, you can take the output from bin/config_list -o for a
list with the desired setup and edit out all the list specific stuff
such as real_name, owner, moderator, description, subject_prefix, etc.
and then run bin/config_list -i with that file as input for newly
created lists.
