Here's an attempt to do that (not sure about the document structure, so
feel free to reorder it).

+    Some packages might require special care. If some of the following packages

+      Evolution (GNOME Desktop mail client) is upgraded from
+      <literal></literal> to <literal>2.30.3-5</literal>. Due to
+      changes in the local storage format and the possibility of data loss, it's
+      really recommended to make the upgrade with Evolution not running. The main
+      interface should be quitted, but the various Evolution components shouldn't
+      run either. The best way to ensure that is to quit the desktop environment
+      before doing the upgrade and run it from command line.

+    <para>
+      A check will be done during the upgrade to verify no Evolution process
+      are running, and a chance will be given to manually quit all evolution
+      instances. If the upgrader still detects processes, a choice will be
+      offerred to either stop the upgrade or continue and kill the evolution
+      processes.
