Yup.  Those are the ones you want.  Problem is, they're back-end 
command-line tools, and you'd need to be the site administrator with

In other words, a "normal" user account would not be sufficient -- 
you'd either have to be root, or otherwise have access to the Mailman 
userid, because all of the files in question will be owned and 
writable only by Mailman (or root).

I'm not sure if there are ways to automate these sorts of things 
through the web interface.  You'd need to check the appropriate entry 
in the FAQ Wizard for the web automation stuff to see if that's
