     I have not done this.  I have some comments on dselect in the
README-upgrade.  That will be in ../slink/main/upgrade-i386 in the
archives.  (It is now in Incoming; Dark is trying to teach me how to
upload a .changes file for a non-package.)  That directory will be
symlinked to a top level directory in the CD called upgrade/ or

     When I tried that URL, lynx reported:
 The requested URL /2.1/HOWTO.upgrade was not found on this server

     My README-upgrade is primarily addressed to users upgrading from
pre 2.0 versions using apt-get dist-upgrade or cd_autoup.sh, but it
has a few comments, particularly about split packages, that would be
helpful for upgraders from hamm.

     The autoup-README that has been posted in the Developers Corner
of www.debian.org refers to using the standalone autoup.sh script.
