Hi and thanks for the report.

AFAICS you get something like this:
- List myproject-mylist updated [#1]
- You must provide list name that is two or more characters long: [#2]

Thus the list is well marked for deletion (#1). You can ignore the other status message (#2).

I'll have a look to remove the extra status message (#2), but I didn't see anything critical.

Seems like it should be possible to remove the spuriously-required mailing list that gets created using that the same savannah web page?

As for a real fix, I'm afraid that's going to take someone who can actually hack the savannah code, and I'm not set up for that.  I hope Sylvain gets to it or (even better) someone else comes forward.

Yes indeed, I have just encountered the same problem.

Using the Mailing List -- Configure page for my project, it wouldn't perform the password reset operation unless I provided a name for a new mailing list to create.

I cannot reset the password for the libcvd-members, since the interface requires me to put in the name for a new mailing list to create.

On a related note, I have also inadvertently created a list called libcvd-libcvd, which I would like removed.
