Hi Fred.

In the root directory of the tarball there should be a file called 
"MIGRATION" which has the instructions for changing the database schema.

For the 1.3 to 1.4 migration the instructions are under the section 
"Migrating trunk". In short you need to run one of two scripts:


depending on your database choice.

They are just sql statements so can be run in many ways, e.g.:

sqlite3 [PATH_TO_DB] < enforcer/utils/migrate_adapters_1.sqlite3

Thank you.
