[owncloud-devel] Fool proof upgrades?

I understand the update app offers major new releases; but our documentation 
states: "The Updater app is not for upgrades; please see Upgrading Your 
ownCloud Server for instructions on upgrading to a major release."

Either we don't offer major versions over the updater app; or our 
documentation is wrong. The third option (you shouldn't use the updater app 
for major updates but we DO offer that through the app) sounds like a pretty 
big bug to me...

But I've seen similar questions and requests around. I thought oC 8.0.2 was 
supposed to deal with the apps breaking on upgrade - it does disable them, 
but things still break if old ones remain around, right?

Everything I do and say is based on my view of the world today. I am not 
responsible for changes in the world, nor my view on it. Everything I say is 
meant in a positive and friendly way, unless explicitly stated otherwise.
