How does Mailman know what you require?

I don't think it is difficult to change. The FAQ at
<http://wiki.list.org/x/7oA9> gives the procedure.

You'd have to ask RedHat for that.

The "correct" way to fix this is described in steps 2 and 3 in the
above referenced FAQ. Note that if you haven't changed
DEFAULT_URL_PATTERN in mm_cfg.py per step 2 of the FAQ, you will have
the same issue with every new list.
