Mentioned in SAL (#wikimedia-operations) [2017-03-17T23:30:59Z] <mutante> lists: making Steinsplitter and Zhuyifei1999 list admins of commons-poty (T160672)

I logged in on the list admin page using the master password and added @Steinsplitter and @zhuyifei1999 in the list admin field.

Then i connected to the list server with ssh and ran [fermium:/var/lib/mailman/bin] $ sudo ./change_pw -l commons-poty -p $(pwgen -c1 -s 12) which sets a new random password and will trigger an automatic email to the people listed in the admin field above.

@Steinsplitter, @zhuyifei1999 you should have received that automatic mail now and you can use that random password to login. You can add the other members you have listed on if you like and you can also reset the password again yourself. Just keep in mind please that there is only a single admin password that you all have to share. So if one of you changes it , they need to share it with all other admins.
