The current version of Mailman does not have a proper database.  There 
is some information about a user that is stored in binary format in a 
Python "pickle" file, but that's not a proper database.  Mailman3 will 
be able to properly interact with real databases on the back-end, but 
even there you won't really have any hooks that you can use to put 
additional information into the database.

If you have additional information you want to track, you need to keep 
this in a system that is outside of Mailman, and develop your own 
methods to keep those two systems in sync.
