I want to transfer one mailman list from one server to another. I guess the old config is in the mailman\lists\LISTNAME\config.pck file, but i can't read it and I don't want to blind copy files around without knowing what I do.

old-server% config_list -o foo oldlistname

check foo to make sure it's got no server-specific stuff in it. copy the file across to new-server.

new-server% config_list -i foo newlistname
