Default Updating database schemas

Hello to other web app developers,

Xavier Lamien sent a message to me today about incompatibilities in
database schemas between FAS versions 0.8.4 and 0.8.5. This prompted me
to think about how we can help people update their databases if changes
occur between versions of the database. For this particular update I
added sql scripts to FAS in the updates/ directory and listed how to
invoke them in the README. If you are updating your database schema and
you are also packaging the software for general consumption (for
instance, packaged in rpm form in Fedora proper), please consider how to
manage this for your users. There's a variety of ways ranging from what
I did to the `migrate`_ project (I haven't seen this appear in Fedora
yet. Any takers?) leveraging tg-admin sql might work for simple cases
like adding a new table but I haven't found that it will update existing

In any case, remembering to document the procedure for other members of
the code will be great.
