[Mailman-Users] allow members of one list to post to another

I'm trying to switch my department over from smartlist to mailman. We
currently have several smartlists configured so that if you're on one list,
you can post to another even though you may not be subscribed to the second
list. How can I reproduce that with mailman?
For instance, if I want all faculty members to be able to send a message to
the computer staff, I would want everyone n the faculty list to be allowed
to send to the computer-staff list.
Do I have to subscribe all faculty to the computer-staff list and then just
have them not get messages? Is there an easier way?
In smartlist, you can do this by creating a symlink to the subscription file
for the faculty list to the allow file for the computer-staff list. So when
an addresss is added to the faculty list, it automatically updates the allow
list for computer-staff because they're actually the same file.
