[Mailman-Users] Moving Configurations and Lists to a New Server

Thanks to Steve Turnbull's help and some intelligent manual-reading, I
have successfully built and installed version 2.1.18-1 on a Debian 7
(Wheezy) system. check_perms reports no problems, `version' reports
the right version number, I'm ready for the next step, which is to
move an entire configuration and mail spool from an old Debian
5+Mailman 2.1.11 server.

I imagine the spool (/var) files can just be tar'd and moved en masse.
But what about mailman configuration files--mailing list info, that
sort of thing? What should be moved, what should be re-created, etc.?
