[Server-devel] XS 0.5 upgrade notes

Hi Douglas and Martin,
As Martin says, can we put that in the release notes?
Also on release notes, I was poking around in GIT and came across a
bunch of very useful looking Readme files. Can we copy those in to the
release notes (or maybe link to them in GIT if they will stay the same)?
I think that's all the documentation we will need for most features.
Let me know how I can help with the mechanics of making the info
available or with creating the release notes content.

everything was good.
Yeah, that's worthy of a release note commment, and a pointer to
xs-swapnics which does the job too :-)

Ouch. So it's still using the old/bad yum config file? That'd be
something to look into around the xs-config upgrade path where we try
to fixup overwritten files.
