[Mailman-Users] How do I get my 2.0 members into a new 2.1 Mailman install

I recently upgraded from a RedHat 8 box to Gentoo. In doing so I upgraded
Mailman. I have the old Mailman directories mounted and access to the files,
but I do NOT have a running 2.0 version. I have Mailman 2.1

I've followed two different "upgrade" posts to go from Mailman 2.0 to 2.1
but both ways have left my lists "empty".

Here's the most recent one which is essentially the same thing as the other
method I tried.


cd $MM20
mv -i lists/foo-list $MM21/lists
mv -i archives/private/foo-list $MM21/archives/private
mv -i archives/private/foo-list.mbox $MM21/archives/private
rm archives/public/foo-list
rm archives/public/foo-list.mbox
cd $MM21

daevid mailman # ./bin/withlist -l -r fix_url rbc
Importing fix_url...
Running fix_url.fix_url()...
Loading list rbc (locked)
Saving list

But when I type "./list_members rbc" nothing shows up. :(

How do I get my members into the NEW 2.1 lists??!
