[Mailman-Users] Moving list between servers

I've already done this, but just wanted to know if there was a better

I recently took over hosting a list from another mailman host.  Is there
a simple way to get all of the data (members, setting, etc) from the
original host and transfer it over to the new one?

What I ended up doing was quite a bit more painful.  I got the results
of the 'who' command to <list>-request and split that into two files,
digested members and non-digested members.  I then added these to the
new list using add_members.  The painful part was that I had to iterate
through the old list to find hidden members and copy them as well.

One thing that would be really handy is a version of list_members which
dumps all members and their attributes, and a corresponding version of
add_members which could suck in the same data.
