Erm, yes, forgot that bit!!

You must check that you can do the following successfully, and that
the package works after you have done each one:

(a) Upgrade from the previous version and from the version in hamm.
(b) Downgrade back again.
(c) Install the package as a new package (i.e., with no previous
    version installed).
