I've tested upgrade from feisty to gutsy on a a bit complicated setup 
trough virtualized-copy-of-production server and these are results:

* Apache+PHP5+memcache - everything OK
* MySQL master-master replication - everything OK
* heartbeat + ldirectord - everything OK
* postfix - everything OK
* /etc/iftab -> udev rules - everything OK
* other (SSH, syslogd...) - all OK

Only thing left to test is kernel, but I can't reproduce hardware in 
virtualized env., so this will wait stable release.

Upgrade was done with 'do-release-upgrade -d'.

Looking good. Very good :)
