You can send a 'who' command to the listname-request address or view
the roster (via the listinfo page or directly at something like
http://www.example.com/mailman/roster/listname). The problem is
neither of these shows 'hidden' members anthough the roster indicates
how many there are.

If you have access to the command line interface, you can use
bin/list_members to get the list and/or you can use bin/withlist to
set the lists admin_member_chunksize attribute to a number larger than
the list's total membership and then the Membership
Management...->Membership List will be all on one page.

If you don't have access to the command line, you can script the web
interface to automate retrieving the member list. See
