The only issue I know, as the creator of those rpms, are possible problems
with sieve scripts not being properly converted to UTF8. On upgrade, sieve
scripts are compiled, if that fails, they are converted to UTF8 (that's
the main reason for not being compiled properly), and then they are
compiled again.

However, I never got a report of someone upgrading from 2.1.x to 2.2.x
using the rpms who had a problem, even the one described above.

If you're still not convinced, chk_cyrus and quota -f may be your friends.
