[Spread-users] Is there a way to get the name(s) of members in a group using spread ?

Regular membership messages contain a list of the members (private 
groups names, that is) of a group.  See the Spread documentation for a 
full description of the format.

If you mean, instead, to get the membership of a group through some 
function call without being part of the group and receiving membership 
messages, there currently is no such interface.  However, it wouldn't be 
completely unreasonable to implement something like that
