 Replying to [ticket:22704 pento]:
 > Finally, are there any features we should be looking at adding to the
 upgrader for this? More sanity checking, notifications, other?

 Probably three-fold:
  * Sanity checking via file hashing (confirming that files actually got
 copied over)
  * Sanity checking through some other means, like a parallel install
  * Notifications

 I've never really thought heavily about SVN updates. As a developer,
 having an SVN site update automatically is weird and probably not
 desirable. If you managed to do a checkout, you can set up a cron to
 update it.

 The first step is probably opt-out (or opt-in, if we are chicken) updates
 for security and maintenance releases. The next step is probably an update
 from major-to-major after the .1 drops.

 Warning you now, this Trac ticket is likely to get out of hand, quickly.
 Trac is more about implementation, not planning out potential roadmaps.
 (Though I applaud your initiative and can't wait to see you build it.)
 Summaries of the extensive Updates discussion from the community summit
 should probably be published (if it hasn't been already), and then this
 should be taken to a P2 thread.
