  /usr/local/apache (mailman config is in there)
  /var/spool/cron/mailman (single file)

  And I do all of that in one fell swoop:

  tar cfI - /home/mailman /usr/local/apache /var/spool/cron/mailman > \
    /backup/mailman.`/bin/date +\%Y\%m\%d`.tar.bz2

  This creates 'mailman.20020130.tar.bz2'

Or get lists and members with this.
