I have looked into the issue of listing the members of an OLPC mailing list.

This roster information on the localization list is available via email for instance, by sending mail to localization-request@… with

who <mypassword>

as the text of the message.

Replace <mypassword> with the appropriate password for your list membership on the particular list.

Changing the known (but not documented) behaviour of the OLPC mailman installation such that the web form in question properly links to http://lists.laptop.org/mailman/roster/localization would be non-trivial given the large number of lists already in existence.

This thread from 01 Dec 2007, http://www.mail-archive.com/mailman-users@python.org/msg46885.html, suggests that users can see the subscribers list:

The roster can be set on Privacy options...->Subscription
rules->private_roster to be viewable by Anyone, List members or the
List admin only. Even if it is viewable by anyone, the links to users
options page will normally take one to the user's login page.

Once signed into Mailman, this URL provides a subscriber list, http://lists.laptop.org/mailman/roster/<listname>.

Is this really still a problem? Henry Hardy pointed out how to get the subscriber list by e-mail. It works for me for devel@ but that's because I'm an administrator.
