There is a patch at <https://bugs.launchpad.net/mailman/+bug/867611> to
enable per-list password reminders which will use a list specific
cronpass.txt template. This patch will never be incorporated in a
future  Mailman 2.1.x release because it would be too annoying for
people who are members of multiple lists in the installation[1], and
it is moot for Mailman 3, but you are welcome to use it if you think
it's appropriate for your installation.

[1] If you currently have users who report password reminders as spam
from your server to their ISPs, think what will happen if they start
receiving a reminder per list instead of just one.
