I have a working upgrade from mysql-mmm-2.0.x -> mysql-mmm-2.1.  I verified that all expected changes happen, and that the running processes are gracefully condrestart'd. 

The changes are pretty straight forward.  Because this is the first release of mysql-mmm >= 2.1 I am touching a file at '%{_datadir}/mysql-mmm/.pre-2.1.0-upgrade-check' in the install.  From %pre, if this file does *not* exist then the current install is < 2.1 (meaning modifications need to be done for 2.1 compatibility).  I then touch '%{_localstatedir}/run/mysql-mmm/.post-2.1.0-upgrade-do_mods' (in %pre) allowing me to verify that modifications are needed in %post.  

The modifications are simple sed changes for pid/status file and sbin daemon paths.  I suppose I'm looking for another set of eyes to point out anything that is not obvious to me.  The following are the [snipped] spec changes:

# --------------------------------------------------
%install
# … snipped
# Specific for upgrading from 2.0.x -> 2.1
touch %{buildroot}%{_datadir}/mysql-mmm/.pre-2.1.0-upgrade-check-do-not-delete


%pre
# This is to facilitate the upgradability of 2.0.x -> 2.1
DO_MOD_CHECK="%{_datadir}/mysql-mmm/.pre-2.1.0-upgrade-check-do-not-delete"
DO_MOD_VERIFY="%{_localstatedir}/run/mysql-mmm/.post-2.1.0-upgrade-do_mods"

rm -f $DO_MOD_VERIFY 2>/dev/null

if [ ! -f "$DO_MOD_CHECK" ]; then
    # the 'check' file does *not* exist (only installed as of 2.1.0)
    # modifications are necessary.
    touch $DO_MOD_VERIFY

    # copy paths for new configs (if replaced on upgrade)
    cp -a %{_localstatedir}/run/mysql-mmm/mmmd_mon.pid \
      %{_localstatedir}/run/mysql-mmm/mmm_mond.pid 2>/dev/null ||:
    cp -a %{_localstatedir}/lib/mysql-mmm/mmmd_mon.status \
