Thanks Tony. We were planning on starting it within the next couple of
weeks, and then doing it bit by over a few months. We could probably
wait a couple of months before we start if it made things easier in the
long run. What sort of time-frame is 2.6 expected in?

You say that it can work with 2.5 if I'm careful. I would be the only
person who would be doing the moving of files, so if you can stipulate a
best-practice approach to it then I can follow that.
