	What I tried to do there was detail how the changes would happen in  

opt/local/etc/ports/ports.conf          ----->     /opt/local/etc/ 
/opt/local/etc/ports/dp_version          ----->     /opt/local/etc/ 
/opt/local/etc/ports                     ----->     /opt/local/etc/ 

	So that readers would actually catch each and every single change.  
The last line indeed tells you "/opt/local/etc/ports" becomes "/opt/ 
local/etc/macports". I added the word "gradual" in "WIth respect to  
installation paths, a default MacPorts installation upgraded to this  
branch would experience the following gradual moves:" to try to  
explain this better, but let me know if you'd like to see an "overall  
results" box with what will finally be there.

	Hhhhmm, I just logged in right now with no problems. Try some  
standard debugging techniques like dumping cache, restarting your  
browser or similar and try again, let me know if you're still  
experiencing problems.
