[Mailman-Users] Server Migration (and archive repair)

I need to build a new mailman server.  What is the best/easiest way to
migrate lists (and their archives) to the new machine?  Something that
used rsync would be nice so I could keep things as up to date as possible
and then do a final rsync right before the migration.

This is definitely something that needs to be done slowly and kept up with,
our archives are currently 26GB in size. ;)

The other thing is, a previous admin tried to clear out the archives for
a couple of lists, and now the new messages are no longer archived.  How
do I repair these broken archives?

suited to making sure that my burger is cooked thoroughly."  -- Jonathan Patschke
