[Mailman-Users] md5 passwords -- not!

Dude... you are in for a rude awakening.  What version of Mailman are you 
using?  I'm going to guess that you are on the latest non-alpha release: 
vesion 2.0.8...  (nothing like having to guess at the details so that you can 
help someone!)

The passwords are stored in plain text inside of the mailing lists database 
(~mailman/lists/<list_name>/config.db).  You can look at the archives from 
two weeks ago to find a script that dumps out the passwords for each user.
You can look at the FAQ to see a script that takes those username/password 
paris and creates an Apache access file.

Good Luck
