A full update path will be provided beginning with the Release Candidates.
Based on this, I plan to go live with the first RC (provided I have finished my custom template by then).

If this last bit is true, please update "Read me before posting" to reflect the "no promises" bit, because at the moment, it looks a lot like a promise...
