"Phase 3" is the old name for the current code base, not the name for
the next version of MediaWiki.

In general, Brion and the other MediaWiki developers have done an
excellent job making sure that the update code works well. Barring
major changes in development policy, upgrades for future versions of
the software should have at least written instructions and usually
some automated process.

You shouldn't ever have to. If you do, don't upgrade to the new
version. (I'm just imagining myself trying to explain this to users on
our wiki: "Well, we had to wipe out a year's worth of work, but on the
plus side, we now have GRAPHICAL SMILIES.")
