Michael Wall commented on ACCUMULO-4479:
----------------------------------------

Ok, I put a PR up for upgrade notes before I understood what Christopher meant.  My concern
here is that it was too easy to miss including upgrade notes for the 1.8.0.  I am going to
remove the UPGRADING.md file from all branches.  All future releases should include upgrading
notes in their release notes.  I may back port upgrade notes to the 1.8.0 release notes as
well.

> UPGRADING.md was not updated for the 1.8.0 release. I actually didn't even realize we
were putting notes about specific upgrade paths in a per-release way inside our release.
> This is prone to being overlooked and forgotten. We should have generic version-agnostic
information in UPGRADING.md, and put more specific per-release notes in an UPGRADING section
on the release notes for specific upgrade issues. At the very least, the version of this document
for the current release does not need to contain upgrade instructions for upgrading to previous
releases.
> The more information we have in our documentation which is written to correspond to the
current/next release, the more (undocumented) manual steps are involved for a release manager,
and the more likely these steps are going to get overlooked and forgotten.
