Hi Jon,

It really depends on how old the version is. Unfortunately, at that time, we
didn't really have version numbers that meant anything. Can you tell me how
you performed database upgrades on the old install? Was it using the old
load-db.py and dump-db.py scripts, or was it using ./manage.py evolve?

Also, were you using rb-site?

Christian
