Will upgrading Ubuntu 9.04 --> 9.10 update Mythbackend?

Lovely design, eh? :-)

I've only experienced a couple MythTV version upgrades, but the schema 
updates have been automatic and without problems. The recommendation, of 
course, is to backup your database beforehand, if you don't do that 
automatically already.

I can't find it now, but there used to be a page on the Mythbuntu site 
where you could look up the repository information for a specific Ubuntu 
version and MythTV version, which permitted some degree of forward or 
backward porting, compared to the mainline Ubuntu repositories. If you 
can find that, you might be able to configure all your boxes to use the 
older version.

I have a mix of Ubuntu versions all using the nightly builds of 
0.21-fixes. Though the URL I'm using:

seems to be broken now. I guess the service has changed or been 
discontinued. (I guess that makes sense, as I know one of my bugs filed 
against Mythbuntu 0.21-fixes received a comment that the devs were no 
longer working on 0.21.)

Looks like they now have a mechanism where you download a .deb file that 
sets up the repositories:

but that will mean upgrading to at least 0.22 stable.
