There shouldn't be any problems doing cvs updates on the stable branch .. even
future upgrades "shouldn't" cause problems

An easy but safe way to do testing is to have 2 installs (they can easily be
on the same machine just by putting the code in different directories and
using a different database name).  Then cvs update one, do some checks, then
cvs update the other.  If the upgrade does not involve database table changes
(some apps don't change table schema very often) you can actually run the
newer code on the old database too.

Cvs updates can sometimes cause problems if you customize the code but only if
a change in cvs coincides with lines you have changed.
