      My experience was from a crash and restore - with a move from 2.1.2 
to 2.1.4 in the process.  I tarred the whole Mailman directory, transferred 
it, and untarred in to a dummy directory.  I installed Mailman as normal 
(new version) and created the Mailman list.  Then I copied 
<prefix>mailman/lists/ and <prefix>/mailman/archives from the dummy to the 
new install.  Added the aliases, and it all worked perfectly.
      I don't see why you can't just tar and move <prefix>mailman/lists/ 
and <prefix>/mailman/archives.
