address@hidden Resetting a password
+There are two ways, the manual way, and the automated way. Whatever
+way you chose, of course, be sure that the person asking for that
+password is an admin of the project this list belongs to.
+The manual way requires only the site-wide Mailman password. Basically
+you log in the administrative interface of the list you want to reset
+the password of, go the [Passwords], type a new password in a text
+editor, copy-paste it the password and confirmation field of the admin
+password, and send it by mail to the list admin.
+The automated way, which I discovered recently, requires shell access
+to the Mailman machine:
+change_pw -l @var{list-name}
