You must have missed Rahul's email then:

"You dont need any scripts.  If you upgrade, the previous settings will
be preserved and there is no need to change unless you want to.  In any
case, writing these scripts is not release engineering's job.  If
needed, it should be part of something like preupgrade.   Everyone is
welcome to volunteer and get it done."

This seems to be a bizarre game of consequences played out over email
