When you start the new version of mailman, it will look for 
config.pck files where it expects to find the list information. If it 
does not find them, it then looks for config.db files. If it finds 
them, it automatically converts them from the db format to the pck format.

So all you have to do is start (or restart) mailman via the 
mailmanctl script and this will be done for you.
