Assuming you're the list admin, you can add them using the "Membership
Management" screen.

If you want to be particularly stealthy, you can even tell it "no" on the
"Send a welcome message to this batch?" question, and they won't even
receive a notice that they've been added.

If shell-prompt access is available, you can do the same thing using
add_members in your MailMan bin directory.
