thanks for your detailed explanations! They are very helpful for my
decision to upgrade to the trunk version of Retrospectiva.
My Retrospectiva installation runs on a Debian Etch Linux system,
which in turn runs in a VmWare Server VM. So i can stop Retrospectiva
(and Apache, MySQL) and snapshot the system, go for the upgrade and
see how it goes (after starting Retrospectva, Apache and MySQL again)
In the worst case i can go back without too much hassle ...
Thanks for the information, Nathan!
