You can force it to do the migration during the F11 upgrade by specifying
the "ext4migrate" option on the installer's command line and then checking
some option in the GUI. But it's not the default. If you prefer doing it by
hand, it's pretty much your choice when to do it, but I wouldn't do it
before upgrading to the 2.6.29 kernels currently in F10 updates-testing
(and soon in updates), which have some data loss prevention fixes for the
case of system crashes or power failure backported from 2.6.30. (F11
already has those fixes.)
