Not that I am aware of.

Not being able to easily download the whole archive of an ML is
actually the biggest gripe I have with them. In Mailman (which seems
to be the most popular ML software) I have not been able to find a way
to do it. The only ML software that seems to allow this easily is the
new PublicInbox ML Archiver[0] which looks interesting. It treats MLs
like a git archive which can then be easily pulled. Sadly, the
software itself seems to be written mostly in Perl...
