There, once again, seems to be some confusion about the terms
update/updating and upgrade/upgrading.  It is Novell policy, _not_ to
use upgrade if you talk about software issues.  "Upgrade" is strictly
reserved for hardware issues.

In short, do not use the word "upgrade".  Unfortunately, I do not know
where all this is documented.  Probably in one of ours (SUSE/Novell)
style-guides...
