I'm seeking clarification for the upgrade process of Drupal 6 to 7, particularly when upgrading the token module.
The current documentation here, http://drupal.org/node/570162, indicates that we should disable contrib modules in step 6, and uninstall modules you will no longer need.
I understand much of the Drupal 6 Token functionality was moved into core, and Drupal 7 Token simply fills in some gaps. As a result, any use of tokens will need to be reconfigured in the upgraded Drupal 7. However, does the Drupal 7 Token module use the same variables, does it remove older Drupal 6 variables on upgrade, etc?
Simply, should the token module be uninstalled before upgrading?
