In the standard source distribution, all the command line commands
including list_lists and list_members are available in Mailman's bin/
directory and run from there without any special environment.

They do need to be run directly or via sudo by root or some user in
Mailman's group.

Is it the case in Debian that any user on a shared system can run say
list_members on any list?
