I had some similar questions in my upgrade from 1.92 to 1.94.1. I 
approached it as a new installation, making a 1.94 directory so that I 
could try it out as my lists continued to run under 1.92. My big question 
now is- it seems to make sense that I would create new config files for 
the lists under 1.94.1, but what about the current config files? Am I 
faced with having to complete new config files for all (100+) lists? 
Obviously, I lose some functionality using the old config files with the 
updated version. Will the old config files work with the new version?

So, I have a the 1.94.1 in a new directory called mdom2. In my aliases, I 
added an entry that says mdom2:"|/path/to/mdom2/wrapper majordomo". Now I 
can actually create new lists to test before I change over to the new 
version. Eventually, I will have all the lists tested with new config 
files and then switch over. Does this seem like a good way to approach 
it? Any suggestions?
