Many of those folks have been answered, but when the question and answer
have been in the FAQ for a Long Long time, we old-time Mailman guru's
often ignore the question.

It's trivial to move to another server. If you keep the same domain name
(and host name) it's even more trivial.

If your host name changes then in version 2.1.x you need to use the
Mailman command "fix_url" in conjunction with withlist:
  ~mailman/bin/withlist -l -r fix_url <mylistname> -u <my.new.url>

If that works for you, then I challenge you to answer the next ten folks
who ask it on the list.
