That's the point. The script I posted with
mlist.real_name = mlist.internal_name()
will set real_name to the list-name_domain-name.tld name rather than

So what are you really trying to accomplish? If you create the lists
with cPanel's list create process (as opposed to Mailman's bin/newlist)
they should get the appropriate real_name.
If you explain in more detail what you are doing and what needs to be
fixed about the lists' real_name, I can give you a script to do it.
If the issue is that you have lists with real_name =
list-name_example.com and you want to change real_name to just
list-name, put the following script in
if not mlist.Locked():
listfullname = mlist.internal_name()
last_underscore = listfullname.rfind('_');
if last_underscore > 0:
listname = listfullname[0:last_underscore]
listname = listfullname
mlist.real_name = listname
You can then run that with
bin/withlist -r rename_list foo_example.com
to do the foo_example.com list or
bin/withlist -r rename_list -a
to do all lists.
