Details of each procedure should be split up but we need somewhere to
collect all the info. I don't think we need to rush it.
I started a web page to collect my ideas
Obviously it is just a start. I thinking a semi intelligent 'wizard'
where you select your current OS and either acceptable upgrade methods
OR target OS and it will spit out the procedure.
Each procedure could have a forum where people can contribute feedback,
like they do with the php manual.
I think a plan of attack is to collect information while we wait for the
new web site to appear. Hopefully that will minimize duplication of effort.

I think this will be a popular procedure so it would be good to have
this well documented. I know there is some information on this already
though I have not tried it out.
Another thing I might have a play with is a family tree. That might
help people see the differences between versions.
