[20050908] Yet another package upgrading tool
In the neverending story about people writing their own package upgrading tools, here's one from "fab" that is written in Python and which only prints commands to run on stdout, so it's a safe shot for testing. For the real thing there's "|sh -v". See his posting then grab it & play!

Someone should start a webpage with all those different upgrade tools out there, with all their strengths and weaknesses... and then tell me what to use if I want to play safe and only upgrade if it's known that everything is available as binary pkg (== compilation worked), either from a remote server or because it was built in some chroot locally.
