to jump versions. Where my notes end are:

(1) configure all repositories for the next version; then
(2) issue 'zypper dup' to perform the upgrade.

recommendation, cautions, etc. that go along with the process. Do the
configs in ~/ move OK? Any gotchas?

IMO could be that some old ./config are not fully compliant to newer
release so in case of glitches or lack of particular features, could be
useful to start from scratch by deleting old ./config/file.conf.

Thanks Thomas,

Re-woking the Wagon entry to be more complete and useful is beyond
what I was thinking of doing, but I very happy to hear it is part of
your plan.

fyi: I wrote most of the current Wagon wiki entry, but I had insight
into it. I just tried to use it, and wrote up how I thought it
worked. In the process I've filed some bugzillas. I'm hoping the
last of them is cleared this week and makes it into the 11.3 general
release. As of RC2, Wagon was not a useful tool for upgrading to 11.3
due to the bugs, but they look like the easily fixable kind.
