It depends what you mean by API. There is the command you show above,
and there are the underlying things that rmlist does, but I suspect you
want to know if there is a way to remove a list from Mailman's GUI.

If you set


in mm_cfg.py, every page in Mailman's admin GUI will have a "Delete this
mailing list (requires confirmation)" link under "Other Administrative
Activities". Without this setting, the link is not there and attempts to
remove a list via the http(s)://example.com/mailman/rmlist/LISTNAME CGI
will fail.
