Well I have read the definitions but still do not know what to do to 
upgrade from v29.1 to v30.

I think it's critical that this be documented somewhere as doing it 
wrong is much worse than just installing mythtv from scratch. Having a 
backup is good and needed, but if a problem arises during an upgrade it 
could take a lot of work to rebuild.

Techniques to do this have changed over the years. back with going from 
27 to 28, I did dist-upgrade as directed and everything crashed and I 
had to quickly build a fresh system and restore my data.
