[Mailman-Users] migrating to new server

An old server is to be replaced with a new one. The old server
(solaris mailman-2.1.7) runs a couple of mailing lists. 
We will keep the same web address and the same e-mail address on 
the new server (FreeBSD7 mailman-2.1.11).

In the old server the mailman software ran under a normal user 
with everything in the home-dir of that user. 
In the new server it needs to be in /usr/local/mailman 
(where FreeBSD installs it)

What steps need to be executed to migrate all the mailings lists (archives
memberslists etc...) from the old to the new server?
I have unix root access to both machines.

Is there a step by step document ?

The B.Warsaw GNU Mailman - Installation Manual lacks a section on
migration ...
