I'm moving our current mailman to a new box.  We want to migrate all the 
data (lists, archives, and configuration files), except for the hostname 
and web_url will
be change on the new box.  Below are the steps, not sure if this is a 
good way of migrating mailman from current to new box?

1) Move the entire contents of the archives/
   lists/ and directories

2) fix the host_name and web_page_url attributes of the list with 
"fix_url", and rebuild the archives with 'bin/arch --wipe'

Not sure if we have to rebuild the archives if I'm already running 
fix_url with withlist?
