If you've got a capable workstation, then

cd /path/to/mailman
pydoc -p 4242

and open http://localhost:4242/ in your favorite browser is likely to
be very helpful.  I haven't tried it yet on Mailman, but it has been
very effective on some of my own small projects.  You may need to
descend into subdirectories before starting pydoc.  pydoc -g might
work the same way, but with a built-in browser.  I haven't tried that
either, I like my Firefox.
