    There are two issues here:

    The first is that the default site list name is 'mailman' If you wish
    it to have a different name, you can set that in mm_cfg.py with
    something like

    MAILMAN_SITE_LIST = 'other-name'

    You definitely do not want this to be a path such as
    '/usr/local/mailman/data/sitelist.cfg'. (sitelist.cfg is intended to
    be used as input to bin/config_list to configure the site list after
    creating it as standard list create defaults are probably not
    appropriate for this list.)

    The second issue is the initial site list ('mailman' or 'other-name' if
    you changed it as above) must be created before running

    bin/mailmanctl start

    Create the list with bin/newlist or via the web list create interface.
    The latter requires setting a list create and/or site password with
    bin/mmsitepass.
