I wish when member (who also act as List-Administrator/moderator) login
on their membership page (http://%s/mailman/listinfo/<address>) there is
link to administrative page (or held page) and s/he can reach the page
without authenticate first.
That way any list-administrator which also member of the list only need
to remember single password/authentication, no need to notify other
list-administrators/moderators about new password.
The list-administrative page still exist though, this page need it for
super admin (or list maintainer) to help list administrator changes some
setting (just in case).

And then when any list-administrator/moderators make approval (of held
messages) or add/remove any member, there is mail notification to
listname-owner/listname-moderators that message has been approved or new
member has been added or membership has been removed by
<address-of-one-list-administrator>, that way other list-administrators
know that someone has been did the job, no further action required.
