I've actually been pretty well impressed with the clarity and organization of 
Mailman documentation.  I really like the help pages for the administration UI 
("Details for ....") to which I frequently refer people for whom I set up 
lists.  These pages usually achieve the goal of being technically straight 
forward enough to be both helpful to experienced admins and still clear to 
relative newcomers.  This isn't often an easy balance.
