> 1) get a copy of Roundup 1.4.10 (maybe the one in vendor?);

I think I misremember how I did the last update; in any case, this was
done in r76545, and cites http://pypi.python.org/pypi/roundup/1.4.10
as the source that was used. It may have been a diff to 1.4.8 indeed.
The procedure I described before was apparently last used for upgrading
to 1.4.7.

The "vendor" directory isn't used anymore; Erik intended it to support
better merging, but when I tried to use it, the merging failed because
of the substantial changes.

> 2) create a diff between the clean 1.4.10 and "our" 1.4.10 in roundup-src;

> 5) apply the patch obtaind in 2) to roundup-src, adapting it if necessary;
> 6) commit everything (or is it better to make 2 commits (update to 1.4.19 + apply our changes)?);

That's what I would propose, yes - assuming you have the energy to
review all of our local changes again. If not, you can as well try
creating a patch between 1.4.10 and 1.4.19, and try applying that.
