Exactly what "list config information" are you trying to migrate?

Membership is easy if you can dump a list of member names and addresses
from listproc in the form

  Jane Doe <jane at example.com>
  "John T. Roe" <jtroe at example.net>

you can feed that to bin/sync_members to update the membership of the
Mailman list. You can also use bin/config_list to migrate various list
settings although I don't imagine that mapping listproc settings to
Mailman settings is straightforward.

If you can dump the archives of the listproc list in *nix mbox format,
you can easily import that into Mailman with bin/arch.
