Or you could just concatenate the List A and List B list_members output
and use that as input to bin/sync_members ListB.
See bin/sync_members --help for usage. Note if you use '-f' on
list_members for List A, the real names will be added too.

Concatenate the archives/private/lista.mbox/lista.mbox and
archives/private/listb.mbox/listb.mbox files to make a new combined
archives/private/listb.mbox/listb.mbox and then run
bin/arch --wipe listb
