    Is there an easy way to do this? I'm assuming that I would build the new system, migrate the jails over and do a ezjail-update -b I think? Correct me if I'm wrong.

    Moving from ezjail to qjail

    Since ezjail doesn't seem to have been updated for a long time and qjail seems to be a little bit more modern I'm planning to switch. Is it possible to just migrate my existing jails from one manager to the other without problems? Are there any resources about this? Thank you!
