Sounds pretty convoluted for the small amount of people we're talking about

Hmmmmmmmmmm I dunno if Mailman will handle the old archives or not. May
need to split into two URL's for archives (one pre-move and one post-move).

Minor revision suggestions, to simplify (borrowing heavily from yours):
1) Send out an announcement with our plan and timeline to subscribers.
2) Do a stealth subscribe of all 225 users. At this point we discontinue
3) Update trilug.org web page to point to Mailman instead of franklin.
4) Back up the franklin list config
5) Kill the franklin list
6) Set up a forwarder from the old list addy to the new one.
7) Move the old archives over (if anyone here is a Python wizard and has
some time I'll bet we can get them converted to the pipermail format that
I think a quick cutover from the old list to the new would be a lot more
painless and avoid weird interractions between the two lists, as well as
extra (maybe unnecessary) work. Thoughts?
