It looks that way to me too.

It appears from the mail log that the message is delivered to the
wrapper for posting to the list, and thus should get to the in queue
(qfiles/in/), yet it doesn't get as far in the pipeline as ToArchive.

If it is held, it should be in the admindb interface as a held message.
If it is rejected, a reject message will be sent to the poster, but
this doesn't appear to be in the mail log. If it is discarded for any
reason, the discard should be logged in the vette log. If something
goes seriously wrong, the exception should be logged in the error log.

Is there anything in any of Mailman's queues?
