[fix_url options] in the above stands for those options (i.e., -u HOST
and/or -v) you might want to specify to fix_url.

Assuming you have only one URL domain and email domain and they are
properly set as DEFAULT_URL_HOST and DEFAULT_EMAIL_HOST, what you need
to run after changing DEFAULT_URL_PATTERN is just

bin/withlist -l -a -r fix_url

or to see what it's doing

bin/withlist -l -a -r fix_url -- -v

(the -- separates the fix_url options from the withlist options).

If you have multiple virtual hosts, it's more complicated. You need to run

bin/withlist -l -r fix_url LISTNAME -u HOSTNAME

where LISTNAME is a list name and HOSTNAME is the URL host for that list
separately for each list.
