No, there is nothing special to do for the 'old version'. Mailman will
take care of updating the data automatically when it successfully
accesses the lists. If the list data files are in the same lists/
directory as new lists that work, perhaps it is an
ownership/permissions issue. is the group and permissions of the
lists/list-name/ directory and contents the same as those of a list
that is found?

BTW, the requests.db changed to requests.pck in 2.1.5. After the lists
are actually working and a requests.pck has been created, you can
remove the requests.db. There will also be a pending.pck when things
are working.
