    It depends. At a minimum, you should move the lists/LISTNAME/config.pck
    files and archives/private/LISTNAME.mbox/LISTNAME.mbox files and run
    bin/arch on each list to rebuild the pipermail archives. The
    archives/private/LISTNAME/ directories and their contents will be
    created by bin/arch LISTNAME. The archives/public/* symlinks will be
    automatically created as lists are accessed.

    If any domain names changed, you will need to run fix_url.

    Aliases depend on whether they are manual or automated on the new
    server. If they are automated, you only need to run bin/genaliases after
    moving the lists. Even if manual, bin/genaliases should tell you what
    you need.

    See the first part of the FAQ at <http://wiki.list.org/x/2oA9> and the
    FAQ at <http://wiki.list.org/x/mIA9>.
