This conversion does the following steps in fact.
1) install fml8 firstly. In this case, add /var/spool/ml/etc/mail/aliases into $alias_maps of postfix main.cf. /var/spool/ml/etc/mail/aliases may be empty.
2) run "makefml --force newml elena" to create several files fml8 needs.
3) convert address lists in /var/spool/ml/elena to fml8 style.
3-1) IO::Adapter ignores a line beginning with '^#' as a comment. We should handle carefully it since "actives" file contains ^# lines as "off" address.
3-2) s=skip (off) options is ignored. It handles as "on".
3-3) m=... (digest) options is ignored. Also, "# address" is "off" in the case of fml4 but ignored in the case of fml8. We should warn it ?
4) remove the corresponding entry of alias file (/var/spool/ml/etc/fml/aliases) of fml4 and rebuild .db.
Apply case 1 for all ML's.
If we can stop all ML's, it is easy to remove /var/spool/ml/etc/fml/aliases of fml4 firstly and apply case 1 steps. Please stop MTA in migration.

How in half and half case.
For example, site_init.ph or config.ph of fml4 follows
[fml4] push(@ACTIVE_LIST,"$DIR/recipients") if( -f "$DIR/recipients" ) ;instead in the case of fml8 site_default_config.cf or config.cf follows:
[fml8] html_archive_dir = $ml_home_dir/htdocs
