I've done version updates in Ubuntu (apt) and RedHat/Fedora (yum) and in all
cases the suggested method was to upgrade through each version without
skipping. The reason is simply that there is a finite amount of resources
and the upgrade process from version to version is easy to test and account
for, but the time needed grows dramatically for testing all of the possible

There may be exceptions, for example, there will be an LTS to LTS upgrade
for Ubuntu, but these exceptions, if any currently exist, will be well
announced. (wow, three parenthetical statements in one sentence! (not
counting this one))

I realize that this can be very trying when there's an unsupported version
between your current version and the one you wish to upgrade to (like, for
example, needing to go from FC3 -> current). I'm not sure what to do in that
