[Mailman-Users] backing up pending administrative requests

I finally have a solution to my fried config.db problem.  While I could 
copy the config.dbs & relevant files to another machine & make it work, 
I copying them to a new install on the same machine didn't buy me 

So the solution is basically: foreach list in old install, make a new 
list  with the new install, feed config_list -o from old install into 
config_list -i for new install, and copy archives/private/list_name* 
over.  Out of the current ~500 or so lists, I have around 6 that have 
pending administrative requests.  I can get info out of a dump of 
request.db, but I'm not sure what it means, and what will break if I 
don't treat them differently from the ones without pending requests.  
Where is the info mentioned from the request.db kept & what do I need to 
do with it?

Since htdig is compiling without too much pain, I also plan to integrate 
Richard Barrett's mailman-htdig patch into the new install.

Any heads ups before I roll this whole thing next weekend?
