Every list has a 'last_post_time' attribute which is the time of last
post. See <http://www.msapiro.net/scripts/last_post.py> for a withlist
script to display it for one or all lists.

If you want to know things like when was the web admin interface or the
listinfo page for a list last accessed, you'd have to analyze your web
server logs for that info as Mailman doesn't track it.
