I'd say there are a few steps to take:
* Update the (existing) website to list the new list details
* Keep the links to the archives of the old lists on the site, so you
   don't loose the history
* Email the current lists, and suggest that people subscribe to the new
   incubator podling lists
* Stop accepting new posts to the old lists
* Either forward posts destined to the old lists to the new one, or add an
   autoresponder to tell people where to resend

You can probably do 1-3 now, the others should likely wait until most 
people have come across

IP clearance/grants also need doing, and can take a while, so you may wish 
to start the ball rolling on those too

In the mean time, could someone perhaps summarise the current setup of 
websites, code, wiki, issues etc, which everyone will likely want to refer 
to when trying to decide what to move to
