Mentioned in SAL (#wikimedia-operations) [2017-03-17T23:48:30Z] <mutante> lists: creating new list wikispecies-admin (T159625)

//You have successfully created the mailing list wikispecies-admin and notification has been sent to the list owner You can now:

Visit the list's info page
Visit the list's admin page//

@Dan_Koehl You should have received an automatic mail from mailman with an initial password you can use to login on the admin page above.

I only made 2 changes from the defaults: I set the list description to "discussion list for administrators of Wikispecies" and added the second admin you specified.

All other settings i left at default for you to consider. The public archives will appear here:

You can also use the admin interface to mass subscribe people, but be careful to make sure they all agree with that.

One thing i ask you is to share the password with your second admin (either with our without changing it again, up to you). Just note that he did not get an automatic mail yet.
