The easiest thing, with no adverse effects is to

1) make sure you are not overriding the default


2) comment out or remove the 'nightly-gzip' job from Mailman's crontab.

3) remove all the archives/private/*/*.txt.gz files.

Beyond that you can turn off archiving for selected lists and then
remove the archives/private/LISTNAME and archives/private/LISTNAME.mbox
