You could use the site password (set with bin/mmsitepass) to access the
GUI, or you could use withlist as in

[mark at sbh16 mailman]$ bin/withlist -l mailman
Loading list mailman (locked)
The variable `m' is the mailman MailList instance
>>> m.usenet_watermark = None
>>> m.Save()
Unlocking (but not saving) list: mailman
[mark at sbh16 mailman]$

using your own list name instead of 'mailman'. Note that the apparent
empty entry following m.Save() is actually control-D (^D - end of
file) to exit withlist.
