just curious, is the advice to jump on the upgrade to 2.0.0 or use 1.17.0? How should one decide what to upgrade to?

As https://github.com/math-comp/math-comp/releases/tag/mathcomp-2.0.0 says, we'll continue maintaining MC 1 for a while so if you are happy with it no need to rush.

On the other hand, most of the development will now happen on MC 2.

So the wisest choice is probably to move only when lacking a new feature.

BTW, thanks for the advice to provide a porting tutorial! As you can see we did follow it.

you may want to link to the tag for this PDF in the release notes (or put it as part of the release files)? it may move?

Indeed, on the other hand, we might also want to update it in the near future.
