I run services on sarge in two major parts:
- qmail,clamav,spop3, ssmtp,rblsmtp and

I'm considering to dist-upgrade from sarge to etch(testing)
I would like to use mysql5 and php5 if it's not a to big deal to change.
My question is:
Can the dist-upgade do it for me or the chaos is waiting for me?
I know mysql would like a full export/import.
Is there anithing else?
Is teher someone with experinece on it?
I've done this several times and I always go back to Sarge.
If you *must* have an Etch package, install just that.
In all cases *backup* (TM) before you do it or do so on another
Thank you all for the help!
Where to install the packages from? From debian-etch or backport.org or
dotdeb.org or ??
What will happen when I install from one of these sites and etch changes
from testing to stable?
What will make a dist-upgrade in this case?
