Other release versions usually aren't listed explicitly, unless there is
something special that needs to be done to upgrade them.  The fact that
10.1 and 10.2 aren't listed is a sign that there's not going to be any
great difficulty upgrading from those versions.

We haven't seen any horror stories about upgrades on the lists since
10.3-RELEASE came out.  That silence is what should give you confidence:
people just don't talk about things that work routinely.  The minute
there's a problem though...
