Whoops!  Thanks.  Not sure how I did that.

I'm not trying to say that there's a 'choice'.  I mean that when 10.04.1
was released, a bare do-release-upgrade would not yet take you there
directly from 8.04.* unless you forced the issue.  When 10.04.2 was
released (if I am remembering the schedule correctly), an addition was
made to the files that do-release-upgrade checks, allowing upgrades not
only from 9.10 but also from 8.04.

Okay, how about I just stop getting into conversations where people bark
orders at me, instead.  I'm not a fan of the lack of documentation for
this, either.

You are in an open field west of a big white house
with a boarded front door.
There is a small mailbox here.
