We will probably decide what path to take tomorrow.  I'm not sure if
we're prepared to wait, since waiting 1 week will probably only get us
using the new Beta-2, and won't solve any problems for Beta-3 or
official release of 2.0.

I'm not sure the details of everything that is in FreeIPA, but I think
right now it is at least user information and NFS mounts.  Possible
more.  We have 10-20 accounts, so not much.

I don't really care about this.  We can loose all passwords as far as
I'm concerned.  Peter, the other person who has been on this thread and
the one who has done all the work, may have a different opinion.

Yes, we're OK to try manual procedures and different approaches, *if* we
decide it is worth sticking with FreeIPA.

How did you expect anyone to seriously try to use FreeIPA if they
couldn't migrate between versions?  Surely installation and extended use
(weeks/months) by non-developers is part of any beta-testing plan.
