I'm not sure if it's a good idea to rename a list with so many long
referenced archived postings. If anything, perhaps the list should be
deprecated or ignored until the Xen traffic on @fedora-virt becomes
onerous (or not).

Renaming a list is annoying, but mechanically not too hard. Here are my
notes from the last time I successfully did it to a private list. I
swapped in the fedora names for my names. I use postfix.

cd /var/lib/mailman/lists
mv fedora-xen fedora-virt

cd /var/lib/mailman/archives/private
mv fedora-xen fedora-virt
mv fedora-xen.mbox fedora-virt.mbox
mv fedora-virt.mbox/fedora-xen.mbox fedora-virt.mbox/fedora-virt.mbox
/usr/lib/mailman/bin/arch fedora-virt

cd /etc/mailman
perl -pi -e 's/fedora-xen/fedora-virt/g' virtual-mailman
postmap virtual-mailman
perl -pi -e 's/fedora-xen/fedora-virt/g' aliases
postalias aliases

Login to http://hostname/mailman/admin/fedora-virt and change all
occurrences of fedora-xen to fedora-virt. Changes made under General
