As for a reference, see, perhaps lines 282-294 of NEWS.txt: 
    282     Virtual domains are now fully supported in that mailing lists of the same
    283     name can exist in more than one domain.  This is accomplished by renaming
    284     the lists/ and archives/ subdirectories after the list's posting address.
    285     For example, data for list foo in example.com and list foo in example.org
    286     will be stored in lists/foo at example.com and lists/foo at example.org.
    288     For Postfix or manual MTA users, you will need to regenerate your mail
    289     aliases.  Use bin/genaliases.
    291     VIRTUAL_HOST_OVERVIEW has been removed, effectively Mailman now operates
    292     as if it were always enabled.  If your site has more than one domain,
    293     you must configure all domains by using add_domain() in your
    294     etc/mailman.cfg flie (see below -- add_virtual() has been removed).

(along with posts, passim, in this list's archive).

Excitement :)

prosecuting policy but a proleptic grant of immunity from prosecution.
That, I am quite satisfied, the Director had no power to give.”
