You can do a quick look with 'withlist':

cd ~mailman
python -i bin/withlist <listname>

It's not pretty, but it does show you what attributes are available.
For the value of any particular attribute, use


Note: when you do this, you're writing Python code.  Don't assign
things to m or m.<attribute> unless you know what you're doing...but
the above (dir(m) and m.<attr>) are completely safe.
