Automating Migration from MM2 to MM3

In order to provide migration from MM2 to MM3, we will need to reformat the list configuration, membership rosters and the user preferences.

What should we do about: pending messages and the message archives?

Is it sufficient to assume that the MM2 lists will be shut down and all pending messages (and digests) will be delivered/flushed before restarting the list on the MM3 server?

Do we need to provide a legacy interface to pipermail, thus "kicking the issue down the road", or
Will someone migrate the legacy archives, or
Will the user be expected to maintain two archives?

Have I omitted any additional transition issues?
