[wp-hackers] Simplified Upgrade Process

Whoa!  like that scares me and will, almost certainly, by definition
break incoming links.  I use wordpress to power my blog site but I
have other files I ftp up like my resume which I can't format well in
WP (my fault not WP's).

I don't know the history of this list well so if this has been covered
before, smack me with a wet noodle but major system upgrades are
basically fairly rare.  This one is painful because WP 2.0 is only a
month ago.  One thing that I've seen is that installing plugins /
themes is non trivial for non geeks.  If installation is really your
interest isn't installing plugins and themes easier a better focus?

*girds self for wet noodle slappage*
