Hi systems@, Adam,
I did as promised, looks like everything is working, mailman is tricky 
for renaming lists. I mostly followed this FAQ:

4.70. How do I change the name of (rename) a list?
Additionally I manually edited /var/lib/mailman/data/aliases in order to 
make a temporary alias for backward compatibility. I'm not sure it will 
work - it will likely be overriden because that file is built automatically.

Archives and such are preserved.

Regards and thanks for your help hosting us,
