This document lists instructions for people with existing groups installations on how to upgrade to newer versions of grouper (or grouper related products).  If you notice something missing please let us know.  The instructions are in descending order based on date/release.  You will find instructions below for Grouper, Grouper-ws, Grouper-ui, GSH, USDU, etc.  It is assumed if you are running grouper-ui that you will perform both the grouper upgrade notes, and the grouper-ui upgrade notes.  These steps start from 2008/05/14, after that date things will be more accurate.  It is understood that you will get the new source/javadoc/etc files, this document addresses configurations, jars, etc.
