Deployment guide

Actions during Tuleap upgrade

This section explains the actions an admin must or should do during a given upgrade.

Note about config files (Tuleap’s *.inc): as long as you are OK with the defaults set by the development team, there is no need for you to add those new variables in the corresponding file, the default is automatically set for you.
