I am having a few minor (but annoying) problems with NetBSD 1.0, but 
basically it is pretty stable and runs well, and I'm happy with it.  
However, I would like to see if I could fix the aforementioned small 
problems as well as add some of the functionality of -current.  

I am wondering what experiences other people have had in the process of
upgrading to 1.0.  Did you find a lot of things broke.. etc?  I can't afford
to have much downtime... but of course I realize I am running a free 
operating system here, and I'm own my own as far as that goes.  I will of 
course do a full dump before I upgrade, and then if stuff is too broken I 
will restore and continue... the problem is I need to avoid installing it 
and thinking everything is going fine, only to find dozens of "gotchas" 
later on.  

Also, I am wondering if there is any convienent documentation on changes
from 1.0 through -current.  Also wondering if there will be a new numbered
release anytime soon... 2.0?  1.5?  1.0.1...? whatever...
