[Mailman-Users] moving mailman lists to new server, same domain name

I am moving a number of lists to a new server.
Eventually the new server will have the same domain name as the old, so I don't think I need to change urls.
I have read the FAQs, and lots of emails on this list, and I think I know what to do, but would like to be sure I am not missing something.
I have installed mailman 2.10 on the new server, and now plan to move the lists and archives.
/.migrate contains copies of files from the old server on the new server.
The commands I plan (on the new server) are as follows:

cp -npvR /.migrate/usr/local/mailman/archives/ /usr/local/mailman/archives
cp -npvR /.migrate/usr/local/mailman/lists/ /usr/local/mailman/lists

Sound right?
Is there anything else I need to do?

Also, does it matter what I selected during installation for the mailman administrators email? (I accepted default: root at mydomain.com )
