is there any tool or script to remove the moderator passwords from all

mod_password = None
thanks a lot! Can the normal list administration password also be
changed via that way, and if so, which parameter do I need to use?
password = (without mod)?
To set the list admin password you can use
password = 'value'
but value is a sha digest of the plain text password. In order to set
the plain text password, you would need the input to config_list to be
from Mailman.Utils import sha_new
password = sha_new('new_password').hexdigest()
but this will only work with Mailman 2.1.12 and later. For older
mailman, this needs to be
password = sha.new('new_password').hexdigest()
but this will issue a deprecation warning with Python 2.6.x, but it
Or, you could just generate the sha digest of the plain text password
separately and set that value.
