I replied to the original poster (not sure it made it to this list) and
altered him to the fact there is a migration script
in /usr/share/doc/mailman-*/contrib/migrate-fhs that will tell you what
needs to be moved and move (and/or copy) it for you. Also
in /usr/share/doc/mailman-*/INSTALL.REDHAT is documentation on the
directory structure and the script.
