Impossible to recover lost admin-list passwords

GNU Mailman
Fix Released

Bug Description

I couldn't find a way to set a new password for a list
for which its administrator had lost.

Passwords/admins get lots from time to time and it's
frustrating to solve it deleting and creating a new list :(

In Mailman 2.1 the only way to reset a list admin password
is with the site password. You first have to create the
site password from the command line with bin/mmsitepass.
Then log into the list with the site password and use it to
reset the admin password.
