I'm sorry I had no time to update the manual upgrade instructions. The
README points out that the new upgrade programs now include: DoList,
base.list-1.2 and devel.list-1.2. The base list has been updated to match
current 1.2, although the devel.list is still a pre-release list and may
need minor modification to get all the devel packages upgraded properly.
Once you have upgrade the base files, you should have no trouble using
dselect to upgrade the rest of your system, or you can build your on list
to drive DoList.
Hope this helps,
