The bugs and such are over my head.
- If this happens, advance notice to this list of the precise time would
be very very good. Necessary even. (Why not say two weeks today ?)
- At the point of release, we need point-by-point upgrade guides. The
ones in Codex are ... in desperate need of destruction and rebuilding.
As with 126.96.36.199, the forums will get flooded with the same stuff we did
for .2, .1. So:
Package of changed files alone
Better instructions than "delete all but... and upload"
We need all this at the time of release.
- Skimming the previous upgrade threads
(http://wordpress.org/support/topic/33189 - 200+ posts for 1.5 > 1.5.1)
and hitting on useful stuff there would be good.
Come Thursday, I'll rewrite the Upgrade guide from the the letter U up.
Matt - can we rewrite parts of the Readme.html that concern upgrade ?
The 4 points are true, but a link there to a specific guide might be good.
