I updated a 1.0b6 install to 1.0b8. Seems to have worked fine (great job!).
The upgrade script issued some "errors" though, which it really shouldn't have. Specifically, here is a snapshot:
Updating mailing list: p2c-dev
- updating old private mbox file looks like you have a really recent CVS installation... you're either one brave soul, or you already ran me
- updating old public mbox file looks like you have a really recent CVS installation... you're either one brave soul, or you already ran me
I never used a CVS snapshot. Looking at the code, I believe it doesn't recognize the fact that this came from 1.0b6 (i.e. recent versions) and just assumed it was a CVS version.
Anyhow: it could throw somebody off if they weren't expecting it, so I'd recommend some kind of change -- alter the text, suppress it, etc.
