It's the document against which this bug is filed.  I thought
that the bug # itself was a clear enough reference but I guess not.
The document that says how to upgrade from etch to lenny.

Sorry for the confusion.

The "upgrade document" is this:

"If you're upgrading to the latest stable release from a previous 
version, please read the release notes 
[http://www.debian.org/releases/stable/releasenotes]
before proceeding."

The bug report contains further detail about the nature of the problem
and exactly which portion of the text is confusing and what
the consequences are.  (The upgraded system is left without
the apt-utils package installed, a priority 'important' package.)

Right.  My point is that people need to upgrade and if they 
follow the instructions as written they will have problems --
and the longer the document remains incorrect the more people
will have problems upgrading from etch to lenny.  And, of course, 
if you wait long enough before fixing the document they'll
be no user's left on etch so they'll be no point in 
making the fix.
