If the lists have archives, look at them.
If there are no archives, you can use bin/withlist to look at the list
attribute last_post_time. e.g.
$ bin/withlist listname
Loading list listname (unlocked)
The variable `m' is the listname MailList instance
>>> import time
'Thu Sep 28 09:44:31 2006'
>>> (control-D entered here)
Or create a script to print the list name and last_post_time for all
lists or some subset.
