A long time ago I gatewayed a mailing list (not Mailman) to a newsgroup,
and then made the newsgroup moderated with the moderator email address set
to the submission address for the mailing list.  That meant nobody could
post to the newsgroup without going through the mailing list software, and
the mailing list software could reject non-members.

If you don't want non-members posting to the newsgroup or the mailing list
that might be worth a try.

FAQs are like flatulence. Any asshole can produce them.
