Hi Francois,

thanks for coming up with that topic. Great to see that we are up to
date with most important manuals. Good job!

There will be time and space to have an updated "Installation guide"
including an "Upgrade from 4.5 to 6.2" section, this is already planned
and I even started with it already. This is a very important initiative
from the "Smooth Migration" project.

Will try to work on this during the Code Sprint in Venlo. Martin Bless
will be there as well to support us in case we need some infrastructural

Steffen Ritter AFAIK has also reserved some time for the FAL
documentation topic, so will most probably get more input during the
Code Sprint.

So if anything you think of that could be done by talking face to face
with each other, please document that somewhere and let us know for the
Code Sprint in Venlo!
