I recommend downloading and installing Mailman 2.1.13 on the new server
(see the FAQ at <http://wiki.list.org/x/pYA9> for some Python caveats)
and then just copying Mailman's lists/ and archives/private/
directories and running check_perms. archives/public will take care of
itself as lists are accessed. See the lists posts linked from the
first part of the FAQ at <http://wiki.list.org/x/2oA9> for more.
