If you can accept the limitation of globally unique list names, stick
with what you have and upgrade to 2.1.15 when it is released.

If you need to use the same list name in two different domains, see
<https://code.launchpad.net/~msapiro/mailman/vhost>. This branch is
currently somewhere between 2.1.14 and 2.1.15 and will probably be
merged with 2.1.15 when it is released, but the patches on which it is
based are incomplete and not guaranteed. Read the description on the
above page for more information.

The recommendation for support of the same list name in two domains is
still either multiple 2.1.x instances or wait for Mailman 3.
