The cgi-bin, icons (if used) and spam directories are only used by the
web server.

The bin, cron, mail, qfiles and tests directories are not used by the
web server.

The Mailman, messages, pythonlib, scripts and templates directories are
used by both, but they are immutable so there could be separate,
unshared copies on each server or they can be shared.

The rest (archives, data, lists, locks and logs) need to be shared.
