I have to migrate a dead mailman server running on debian woody to a new Ubuntu server. The drive failed and I was able to image the drive to a new drive but mailman will not run, seems that their is significant problems with the current mailman installation. All the commands seem die with python tracebacks. The data directories for mailman seen to be OK. I did some research on moving a list to a new server an it seems reasonably easy. But I am concerned about moving from an older version of mailman to a newer version. Additionally, I am going to use postfix for the mta, the old server is using exim. I also notice postgres running on the old server and wonder if exim/mailman could be using to for management. I did not have time to fully research the setup, its been running unattended for 8+ years.  I am looking for input about possible pitfalls and ideas to make this go easier Any help would be greatly appreciated.
