This entire thread including the prior post of the following begins at

I don't know why you couldn't find it.

So you are trying to configure the new site list 'dapmm' using the
configuration in 'file'. Presumably 'file' is the output from
something like

  bin/config_list -o file mailman

and contains a line like

real_name = 'Mailman'

Either remove that line or change it to something like

real_name = 'DAPmm'

where the value differs only in case from 'dapmm'.

However, you really don't need to do anything because config_list
already applied all the other changes.
