[nycphp-talk] using mailman for authentication

I'm working with a group that is centered around a Mailman mailing
list (imagine that!) and they want to add a private wiki that would
only be accessible by list subscribers.

Has anyone here built an authentication subroutine against Mailman before?

I'm pretty sure you could just craft a POST request to
/mailman/roster/listname or one of the other pages that requires
email+password auth, and check the response to see if it was
successful. If you have done this and have any tips or gotchas to
share, please do.
