Upgrade from Earlier ClearOS Community 6.x Releases

There is no supported method yet from upgrading from ClearOS 6 to ClearOS 7. Additionally, the layout for ClearOS 7 Beta 3 is different due to the changes in the build system to Beta 2. Upgrades from Beta 2 require changes to the repo content and performance of a dist-upgrade. There may be support for migration of configuration backups.
