I'm not sure what you mean. For Mailman 2.1.x, see the FAQ at
<http://wiki.list.org/x/5YA9> for a description of the various roles.

Mailman was developed in a more collegial world <wink>.

The situation will change in Mailman 3 to one which is more like I
think you want. In MM 3 each person has a login and within that login
user/password can have multiple e-mail addresses and a set of roles
such as

administrator of list1
moderator of list2
member of list1, list3 and list4.

This capability and the implied separation of passwords for multiple
admins does not and will not exist in Mailman 2.1.x.
