I only upgrade the schema for existing projects if there's a reason to
do so (I need an element or attribute that isn't in the existing schema,
etc.). I tend to use the online Roma with the original ODD file from the
project, modified manually or even using Roma. I don't make a point of
upgrading schemas without reason, because I've been bitten by
backwards-incompatibility issues in the past. So in response to a new
TEI release, I do precisely nothing, I'm afraid. I suspect this is a
fairly common approach.
