There currently is no conversion program.
The latest rev (.16) enables the use of the new API
to vset, vget and vdel the _limits functions. They
allow either file or mysql tables depending on the compiled
in version (with the --enable-mysql-limits=y/n). Currently
the first (and only) program using the limits API is qmailadmin 1.0.9.
The table and row are automatically created when a new domain is added.
Rows are deleted when the domain is deleted.
Want to write the conversion program? Should be simple.
Just one source file that uses the "file" vget_limits() and
the "mysql" vset_limits() and iterate over the current domains.
Possibly remove the old .qmailadmin-limits file as well.
