The list names are <expectedlistname>_austinfarm.org.  URLs:

I had been accessing lists through links on 
http://austinfarm.org/mailman/admin and not paying close attention to 
those links.

AND.... mailman-subscribers.py works for me as advertised!

Is there somewhere on the mailman site that I should post my 
experience?  To make the path easier for those following?
In particular, mailman-subscribers.py should be easier to find than it 
seems to be.
