Call for testing of the sarge to etch upgrade path

Over the past few days a lot of work has been done to finalize the 
recommended upgrade path for the Etch release notes (RN).

The current suggested procedure can be found on [1]. This procedure is 
significantly different from what has so far been documented in the 
working version of the release notes, but does look to address most 

Any upgrade tests that could be done over the next days to verify this 
procedure would be most welcome.
Please file a bug in the BTS against "upgrade-reports" with your results.

Especially if you are upgrading a "life" system, reading the concept 
release notes [2] before the upgrade is strongly recommended; please do 
follow the procedure described in [1] for the actual upgrade, but other 
content of the RN is valid (though still being worked on).

Running 'script' before starting the upgrade (as described in the RN) is 
much appreciated as that will make it possible to analyze the results 
afterwards. Please also save /var/log/aptitude after the upgrade.

Logs for test upgrades of a Sarge desktop and server system are available 
for reference [3].

Please note that we do need the results ASAP as we're now in the final 
preparations before the release and there's not much time left to 
finalize the RN.

Cheers and thanks in advance,
Frans Pop
