Test them, and your site. after each upgrade.
The move from 2.9 to 2.10 is likely to be the most painful part in terms of legacy Zope apps. A lot of products will break on 2.10 -- Andrew Milton a...@theinternet.com.au _______________________________________________ Zope maillist - Zope@zope.org https://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope ** No cross posts or HTML encoding! ** (Related lists - https://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope-announce https://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope-dev )
