There is an LDAP MemberAdaptor at
<https://bugs.launchpad.net/mailman/+bug/558106>. The purpose of this
MemberAdaptor is to use an LDAP database as the source of the list
membership. The documentation of that module says in part:

  This module implements LDAP search-based mailing lists, similar to
  those in Netscape SuiteSpot.  That is, the membership of the mailing
  list is defined by the results of a search against an LDAP directory.

This is a read-only interface. I.e., you can't add members to the list
via Mailman.

This third-party module is the only LDAP support for Mailman of which I
am aware.
