Okay, that's cool, I just wanted to make sure I understood the scope of
short-term and longer-term plans. Obviously tackling the minor updates
part first makes a lot of sense. I think that keeping the bigger picture
in mind will help ensure we don't have to redesign things when we set
our sights on the larger picture.

Cool, I just want to make sure that the work we're doing in Nova and
other projects meshes with higher-level plans in this area. Nova is
probably due for a blog post detailing the high-level rolling upgrade
steps, which would help paint the picture of what tools we're building
and expectations we're making.
