I am currently upgrading from a really old roundup instance to 1.6. When
recreating the index with roundup-admin reindex, I got an exception from
xapian that flint is no longer supported. This could easily be resolved
by deleting the index and rebuilding it from scratch. Maybe you can add
a comment in the upgrade documentation? I guess it is always save to
delete the index and re-build it, so this could be helpful advice for
different kinds of problems.
