It's quite possible to go from RELENG_6 to 7.0-RELEASE via the traditional
csup/buildworld cycle. Take a backup, as *always*. If the machine is
remote, have someone prepared to go there ASAP if there is a problem.
Be sure and "mergemaster -p". However, I don't recall much
trouble ... aside from rebuilding all ports. In some cases,
'twas easier to "make deinstall" and then rebuild or even pkg_add.
Mother said there would be days like this,
but she never said that there'd be so many!
