Uhm, I'm not particularly happy about upgrading my system as of now. I
use it for work and I do not have the time to check whether it will
break anything I'm relying upon.

Sure though I could install a separate VM with a more up-to-date
system... that is certainly a possibility.

That is another possibility. It may require some additional work when
it will be time to merge it with 2.6. I'm checking your development
process ( in order to
be compliant with your conventions.

I also noted that with the server migration there won't be any 'svn'
access anymore unless required. I'm not particularly familiar with git
but I guess I can figure that out.
