+If you have modified <filename>/etc/sudoers</filename> then you should be aware
+of changes made to how <systemitem role="package">sudo</systemitem>
+configuration is handled.  The deafult <filename>/etc/sudoers</filename> now
+includes the following directive:
+<programlisting>#includedir /etc/sudoers.d</programlisting>
+You may wish to add this directive to the end of your
+<filename>/etc/sudoers</filename>, as this won't be done automatically during
+the upgrade.  And you may also wish to consider migrating your changes to files
+in the new <filename>/etc/sudoers.d</filename> directory.
+Unless you also add a <literal>Defaults secure_path=</literal> entry to your
+modified <filename>/etc/sudoers</filename>, you may find that <systemitem
+role="package">sudo</systemitem> has an incomplete path.  Specifying the fully
+qualified path to commands will still work, however.  See
+<filename>usr/share/doc/sudo/NEWS.Debian</filename> for more information.
