Did you use the admin page, (whatever/mailman/admin/LISTNAME/members),
or did you go to the listinfo pages (whatever/mailman/listinfo/LISTNAME) and
subscribe them from there?  If you used the listinfo page, then they're probably,
if you took the defaults, waiting on confirmation from the subscriber to finish
the signup process.

Or, if you set it to moderator only, then they're waiting on *you* to approve
them, and they probably have mail telling them they're waiting on the moderator
to approve their subscription.  You can tell that from the admindb page.

(Those are URLs, of course, with "whatever" being your mailman host, and
LISTNAME being whatever you called your list.  For foo.com, and list
"demolist", it'd be http://foo.com/mailman/admindb/demolist)

As an admin, subscribe people via the admin page, which just goes and
adds them to the list.  The only reason an admin would use the member page
is if they wanted to be able to explicitly set the password to something
