You definitely want the lists/ and archives/ directories and their
contents. This is the main thing. I suspect all that's in
/var/spool/mailman/ is the queue directories and that these will be in
/usr/local/lib/mailman/qfiles/ in the OpenBSD installation, and if the
system is quiescent when you migrate, they will be empty anyway. You
may also want the heldmsg-*, site.pw and creator.pw files from the
data/ directory.
