Asking questions is never a problem!  :)
It's more that "versions broke my zope" is a recurring theme
on the list... and the most frequent response is "Don't do that then".

The mailing list archives are very useful. I use the searchable archive
at nipltd.com, but there are other archives around.

There's no question it's a useful idea - particularly for making updates
to a "live" site.  But even though some bugs have been fixed in very recent
CVS, I'm left with a general sense that versions are not trustworthy
and I don't have time to thoroughly test-drive them, so I don't use 'em.
