[vox-tech] How safe is this upgrade?

Hi All,

An associate of mine has this Debian server in a hosting facility
that's been running for about two years, and would like to do a
dist-upgrade.  Does anyone see any reason that this might screw things
up?  I'm a bit concerned about the large number of changes that will
be applied.

Below are some things that I see when preparing to upgrade.  TIA for
any comments.
