Just a small comment. This upgrade seems to reset the repository list to default. I had Testing enabled, but after upgrading it wasn't listed any more.

A small edit to the install/doinst.sh should probably fix it. I seem to recall it backing up the original slapt-getrc and copying the new one over. You could change it that if the file already exists, don't copy the new one.
