to me, this sounds like a good way to get started.

There are some pending requests on both SoS, the request ticketing
system, as well as on the listwork mailing list archives now. I don't
really remember which level of access you have at this time or whether
you already sent a roll call and whether there s an IMC backing your
volunteering for Listwork. If the active Listworker(s) continue to
handle incoming requests for changes the same way it was done in the
past then, to be able to respond to inbound requests, you will at the
very least need an account on the SoS request ticketing system. However,
to carry out any changes you will at least need the shared 'Mailman site
password' which grants you unrestricted access to the
https://lists.indymedia.org web interface, but more likely will you need
system level access, too. So I suggest to handle this the same way as I
just suggested to dpdt1:
