What you need to do is merge the
archives/private/test_list.mbox/test_list.mbox file with the
archives/private/maillistname.mbox/maillistname.mbox so that you wind
up with archives/private/maillistname.mbox/maillistname.mbox
containing its original contents plus that of the test_list.mbox file.

bin/arch --wipe maillistname

will build a complete archive.
