[Mailman-Users] Problems with mailman migration

I run into problems migrating an old installation of mailman into
a current one.

I've got the old installation of mailman (2.0.13) residing at
The mails should be moved to /var/lib/mailman where I installed the
current package (2.1.4, debian testing/unstable).

I already tried the method explained in
but the script described in this mail threw lots of errors and the
result didn't work. A newer method I found wasn't practicable because
the new mailman version doesn't provide a move_list script.

At the moment, I'm using the current binaries and config.db's
in /var/lib/mailman but the configurations point to /home/mailman
(where the archives grow). My setup is really messed up, I know. :(

Could someone point me in the right direction where to find
documentation for moving/upgrading my lists?

Thanks in advance,
Martin Öhler
