That's what it's for. Please send the tracebacks from Mailman's error

It only checks that it can be read as a pickle. It doesn't check the
integrity of the data.

All lists are archived in the private directory. The public directory
only contains symlinks to the private archives.

The good news is if the list works, the config.pck is OK.

Tell us what the error messages say.

It's very tedious, and in this case, I don't think it's necessary.
