Not entirely. If there are held messages, they are indexed in the
lists/LISTNAME/request.pck files, but the messages themselves are in
data/heldmsg* files.

If Mailman-Postfix integration is configured, the Postfix aliases and
virtual mappings are in data/aliases* and data/virtual-mailman*, but it
is best to regenerate these with bin/genaliases after moving the lists.
