hi ron, nice to see you here around...

> I do not have this detailed out. On the sites I did last year on the non-extension version of the Framework, I have left running on TV 1.3.7 as there is not a compelling reason for me to upgrade right away. However, I am probably going to upgrade the documentation site shortly, so I may write guidance after that.
> But this is generally what I would do (working on a copy, of course, and checking operation with each step).

> 2) Upgrade TV to the latest. Set it up to use static DS and use the wizard to convert the DB DSs to static,
> 3) Install the TV framework but do NOT install its TOs
> 4) Relink all my TOs to the new DSs
> 5) Delete the old DSs
> Somewhere in there you will need to use the skin selector to select your skin.

thanks for your pragmatic guidance.

this TV-upgrade seems to be quite tricky, especially when one has (like 
me) several DS (and TO) for each website (and its webpages) in the 
respective GRSPs in the same tree.
