Not currently, to my knowledge. Well, not as standard, without

However, that's not to say there isn't at least one way to do things.

For example:


(and other things in the mysociety/lists tree)

may be of some use, but note, I've not pushed (and currently don't
have the time to push) patches to a more-recent Mailman (either
sources, or Debian packaged) version.

It's *one* way to do things... 

Using the mySoc approach, it could then be down to a *Match (for
Apache) directive to permit groups/users access to the various
/mailman/admin/$REGEXP lists... (rather than our approach of just
using one group access to all lists).
