Yeah, the best thing to do is make an error message that says "it seems

download 4.5 now."

We can get rid of all this since the associated pre-4.5 updates aren't

In the last two weeks we have had two people in #drupal-support asking
about 4.3 and 4.4 to 4.6 upgrades.

For what its worth, I upgraded a site from 4.4.2 to 4.6.3 a few days
ago. It was a circa Sept 2003 release of Drupal.

Of course I did it first on a test install with the old data and old

I had to go incrementally and see where it fails, and go create them
manually (or add columns, or insert roles, ...etc.), and continue. It
took some time but was successful in the end.

It's a go. You know why? Because you can't jump versions anyways. It
just won't work. So, we need to keep updates for one version only IMO.

If that is so and we do, then we will need to make sure that packages
for the major core releases are available and that we provide a nice
set of instructions for people on the update.php page regarding this.
