How to best offer NNTP access to a mailing list archive?

There is a handful of mailing lists, of which I'm collecting all
postings for posterity.
I'd like to make these archives available via NNTP (instead of the
that they are now). Currently the archives are simply a Berkeley mbox
each and not under Cyrus...
What is the best approach for converting them over? The special
addresses, to which new postings currently arrive to me, are:
pisar+/mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org
I'd like the news-groups to appear as "Arxiv./mailing list name/".
Access will be read-only and protected against address-harvesting bots
by a simple username/password -- so I don't need to enable anonymous
access and can tie the ACL to this particular username.
How do I create the pisar-hierarchy, and what ACL should I set (just
"lr")? Do I have to use lmtp2nntp, or will Cyrus' own deliver be able
to, uhm, deliver to these archive(s)? What would be the settings for
imapd.conf? How do I ensure, the archive-entries never "expire"?
