I don't think there is Matthew. In the next week or so, I write up a paper on
what I encountered when updating to a new major OS and using "poudriere".
When I complete it, I'll send it onto you for your perusal, editing,
etcetera. I think we could come up with something worthwhile.

Right now, as far as I can tell, there is a lack of specifics on the subject,
and what is available is scattered all over the place.
