The various ways to "rename" a list are described in the FAQ at
<http://wiki.list.org/x/mYA9>. The only way to truly rename the list
(i.e. change its name while preserving list membership and all member
options) requires renaming several files and directories in Mailman's
file structure and possibly modifying the MTAs aliases. This and other
methods are described in the FAQ.
