Could one of the old time Debianers give the major steps that were taken
with each release? Then it would at least be possible to get an idea of
how big the difference between a major and a minor version increase was
in the past.

I've only just started with Debian, so I can only do

potato (2.2) --> woody (3.0)
 - XFree 4
 - KDE 2
 - 6 -> 11 arches
woody (3.0) --> sarge (?.?)
 - gcc 3 as default compiler
 - gnome 2
 - KDE 3
 - new installer

-- vbi
