[Xerte-dev] Upgrading to 1.8

I'd like to move our setup to 1.8 here: we've implemented some local changes whilst development's been going on in the trunk, and things are getting a bit out of synch, and I'm going to end up getting in a mess if I try and bring all the various things into line bit by bit.

We'll also have a working and reasonably busy install running 1.8 and any outstanding issues will quickly surface...

So, $64m question: I can upgrade going over the top. I'd quite like to make a clean set of files, i.e. backup the existing files; delete the files from the folder on the web server, drop in the new files, and then go, so I'm not left with a load of old files lying around that I'm not sure what to do with: but I need to keep our config files etc.

How best to proceed? We should also write this up so others can follow a simple set of instructions.

I should probably wait until a  quiet ish time of the week to do this, and it would be good if you guys were around for help, should I need it...
