Always good to hear stories of migrations to improve the documentation.

I already have the detailed re-writing of the upgrading HowTo on my list 
for a longer time. But since I moved 2 month ago, I haven't got my 
internet connection and just being online just with a limited and 
unstable UMTS connection :-( . But I'm collecting the 
problems/hints/wishes for later. So let me know what kind of 
improvements you are thinking about, and I'll try to add them.
