Mark -
Thanks the info.  This is really helpful.
One more question, I wanted to make sure all current list admins' list configurations to be moved over to the new server as well.   
What is the file name that contains that kind of information?  I saw the notes on coping lists and archives directories, but I didn't see the information about moving the list admin's list configurations.  Is that information stored in a database file?

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.
