Skipping some releases is no problem.

BUT: you need to go through the docs for all versions (in order), at
least for the HINT stuff or you'll miss some important upgrading hints.

Sure, no problem. Maybe do not skip years of releases or you likely will
also have a long time to work on upgrading your stuff from 1.8 to 2.9).

Well, problem is that we don't have too many developers, thus we
concentrate on the important core stuff.

Also, moin configs can be very complex (depending on what you do, you
have the full power of Python available), so having a script
"understand" everything in there would be at least kind of expensive
luxury (expensive in respect of developer time needed for that), if not
impossible (for the general case).

Yeah, known problem. I'll fix it soon.
