     3== Goal ==

    35'''Target user''': System Administrator of a production system (or the IT operations manager)
    46
    5 '''Goal''': Make operations a big fan of our software - make it more stable, robust and scalable. Make it very easy for them to upgrade.
     7'''Goal''': This is one part of making operations a big fan of our software: Make it very easy for them to upgrade.

    7 Features:
    8     * Nice upgrade experience (automatic updates?)
    9     * Stability, production ready and tested
    10     * Certified on different hardware/software - painless deployment (so we need a nice testing/qa process for running on different set ups)
    11     * Features based on actual user research of useful tools to run their service better - both the system and supporting their users.

     11The current process is manual: UserGuidelines/Admin/Upgrade
    1412
    15 Current Process:
    16  * UserGuidelines/Admin/Upgrade
    17 Plans:
    18  * BluePrintlivecdinstaller#OnlineProfile
     13For other software, people are used to automatic upgrades.  Even the (very complex) Windows operating system auto-upgrades.
     14What can make an Eden upgrade problematic?  There are two types of visible changes:
     15
     16* Structural changes: These are changes that affect data structure and file layout.
     17  * Database schema changes
     18  * Directory structure changes
     19  * Configuration process and parameter changes
     20* Functional changes: These are changes that would alter the site behavior or layout, in non-trivial ways.
     21  This would affect users, and might require retraining.
