Where do you start when upgrading a website with an active community around it? How do you preserve the data for thousands of users and nodes? How do you move away from obsolete modules? How do you limit downtime to a few hours?

These are common questions we have to answer when upgrading websites from Drupal 5 to Drupal 6 and adding new functionality on top of it!
