Hi,
I started work on a old project which was based on SS 2.4. I am working on upgrade to SS 3.1, mostly it is done. At the moment I have a problem with newsletter module.

Old version of this module (0.5) had another architecture:
Instead MailingList was NewsletterType, and this model was related with "Group" model from framework. Groups contains and grouping "Members". It was simple relation.

Now MailingList model is related with new model "Recipient" and I have question that can I use old architecutre or I must clone all users from "Members" table to "Recipient" and move all "Groups" to "MailingList"? At the moment in my page are about 2000 users, and cloning all members to recipients and support both tables is more difficult than on old architecture..

If you don't understand me then tell me and I'll better explain.

Regards
