mysql-server while upgrading Debian 5.0 (lenny) to 6.0 (squeeze)

I'm currently doing plenty of upgrades to Debian 6.0 for customers who tried to wait till the last moment, after all Lenny's security support ended on 9th of February, see http://www.debian.org/News/2012/20120209

Botched Debian upgrades, converting a Cyrus IMAP mail spool to Maildir format

Remember: you should always try to use Debian codenames (i.e. etch, lenny, squeeze) and not "stable" in your /etc/apt/sources.list file (see also the hint in the Debian release notes). Cause if you don't new Debian releases are nothing to look forward to...

Debian Upgrade woody -> sarge

Dass ich Debian gut leiden kann, ist ja bekannt, v.a. die Upgrades sind in der Vergangenheit immer sehr gut gelaufen. Gestern habe ich dann mal den 1. Server von woody (Debian 3.0) auf sarge (3.1) aktualisiert, und auch diesmal ging alles (bis auf kleine Details) glatt.
