Must not be many of us users of hosting services needing mailman help?

No shell access to my hosting service.  I presume I would at least need 
the shell access to do a list_members?  I do have access to cron jobs 
and I have used that to poke around a bit and locate the subsriber 
lists.  No luck there.  Would I likely have access to list_members if I 
had shell access?

I have found that I can not easily get a list of subscribers emailed to 
me with a "who" command transmitted via email.  I would have to change 
a parameter on each and every subscriber via the web interface.  Total 
number of subscribers spread over two lists is about 400.  Is there a 
convenient way to expose the addresses of all subscribers?

In the past, I have copied and pasted out of the web listing of 
subscribers.  That, too, is pretty tedious at 20 a time.  Not something 
I'd want to do every week or so.

HEY!  I think I've got it!  I put "~mailman/bin/list_members > 
list_members" in a cron job and got a list_members file that contains 
list_members help.

Willie, ONWARD!  Through the fog!
