There are command line scripts in Mailman's bin/ directory such as
add_members and remove_members that can be run from your own CGIs. You
can also develop your own html (or wget command) that posts to the web
admin Mass Subscription and Mass Removal functions. This latter
approach could work with the web site and mailman on different

You could also collect data in a file to be processed periodically
through add_members and remove_members by a cron.

There are more detailed discussions of these approaches in the archives
of this list.
