Actually, Mailman won't work without the specific site list. You can
change its name by asigning a different name to MAILMAN_SITE_LIST in
mm_cfg.py. You can set this list to unadvertized and require approval
for subscription (on Privacy options...), but you need it.
bin/mailmanctl checks for it and won't start qrunners if it is
missing. It doesn't have to be publicly accessible in any way or allow
posting, but it should have a valid e-mail address as its owner. It is
used for mailing password reminders, and certain notifications are
sent to its -owner.
