OS upgrade: apply for new animal?

Christian Mair
Hi,

I'd like to upgrade guppy from OpenBSD 3.8 -> OpenBSD 4.1.

Do I need to apply for a new animal?

I see other machines didn't change name when they upgraded...
...on the other hand it might be confusing keeping the name
across upgrades. I'm thinking about the OpenBSD bug that
fails the ECPG regression tests on OpenBSD <= 4.0, for
example...

Bye :)
Chris.

The upgrade facility is on my very long TODO list ... it's half
completed but the server side needs some time.

In the meantime, getting a new animal is possibly the best step.
