You can't. If Mailman (mailmanctl) and/or the web server are running,
lists can be changed. If you want a guaranteed stable snapshot, you
have to stop your web server or at least reload it with a config that
doesn't include the Mailman CGI aliases (ScriptAlias in apache) and
stop Mailman while you take the snapshot.
