It depends. If you are moving lists to an already existing Mailman
installation, that installation will already have a 'mailman' list, so
it isn't necessary to move it.

If you are moving to a brand new, from source installation that has no
lists yet, then move the 'mailman' list too.

In between is moving to a brand new, from a package installation. The
package likely has already installed a 'mailman' list, but you might
prefer the configuration of the one you already have. If so, move the
old one.
