	I'm going to be moving some lists later this month.  I imagine it 
should be pretty easy -- I won't try to copy any of the existing 
mailman configuration files, merely replicate them (as appropriate) 
on the new server.  I will also make a few modifications to them, as 
I set them up.  For one thing, all interactions with mailman will now 
be SSL-encrypted.

	Once the lists are up and tested and shown to be running 
correctly, it should be a simple matter to turn off the old server, 
change the aliases to forward to the new one, change the MX records, 
turn the old server back one, and import the old archives while 
waiting for everyone to pick up the DNS changes.
