Not really for Mailman 2.1. There is a high level description of message
flow in comments in Mailman/Queue/IncomingRunner.py, and you can learn a
lot by reading Mailman/Defaults.py, but the actual architecture is not
well documented.

Mailman 3 is much better in this respect. The distribution contains a
fairly complete set of reStructuredText docs for the core and these can
be processed by Sphinx into HTML, but it is enough different that an
understanding of Mailman 3 internals won't go far in helping understand 2.1.
