There are two upgrade methods:

1. Export XML, then import into the version you would like (in 1.6, the xml
format changed, but you can still import the old with

./ -xmlimportold GrouperSystem export.xml

However, Im not sure all the lastUpdated dates and minor stuff like that is
maintained. Also not sure about group descriptions (this was fixed in some
version, not sure which).

2. Do all the individual upgrade steps.

I went from 1.4 to 1.6 and did the individual steps. It was time consuming
though. If you want to give #1 a try, go for it, and check the data

Is it possible to upgrade from Grouper 1.4.2 to 1.6.1 without
stopping at 1.5.x?

What would be the best strategy?
