I tend to agree. I know from painful experience that doing an upgrade
by "winging it", can sometimes leave one with a broken system. Following
the release notes is important. And the release notes are usually not
up to date until the release becomes the stable release. If you must
upgrade sooner, you can usually, but not always, follow the release notes
from the previous release, but there is usually a wrinkle or two that
is unique to the current release. I know, for example, that there will
be boot loader issues involving hook scripts, etc. And these are not
documented in the Lenny release notes.
