	The current version of Mailman does not have any RSS features.  I 
don't know whether this is planned for inclusion in future versions, 
but it seems likely that it would be, at least for Mailman3.

	There are packages out there that will "screen scrape" web pages 
and turn them into RSS feeds, and there are services out there that 
will do that for you -- you just tell them which pages you want 
scraped, etc... and they do the rest.

	Try Googling for "RSS generator".
