[Moin-user] Upgrading from 1.5.7 to 1.8.0

Hi there,
I have a moinmoin wiki installation with three wiki instances on machine 
#1 at 1.5.7. I have a new machine, machine #2. I want to move the wiki 
to the new machine and in the process, upgrade to 1.8.0.

Do I need to upgrade from 1.5.7 to 1.5.9 before I upgrade to 1.6.4 or 
can I go directly from 1.5.7 to 1.6.4?

Here's what I'm contemplating doing:

1. Install 1.6.4 on machine #2.
2. Copy my wiki data dirs to machine #2 and run migration scripts on 
them. Make adjustments until I have a working wiki, similar to 
3. Upgrade to 1.7.3 on machine #2
4. Upgrade to 1.8.0 on machine #2

Is this a sensible approach? Given my situation, is there another way 
that makes more sense?
