The Question is:
What is the preferred path from OpenVMS Alpha V6.2-1H3 to V7.3-1?

The OpenVMS Wizard would encourage you to seriously consider reading
the available upgrade and release notes available at the OpenVMS
documentation, for all releases you are upgrading over and for the
release that you are upgrading to.
As for FAQ feedback, please notify the FAQ maintainer of your
request(s) -- and that said, the OpenVMS Wizard would assume that
the upgrade matrix requested would be easier to conceive than to
represent in text. The OpenVMS Wizard will pass this discussion
and the text of this answer along to the feedback email address
that is available within the OpenVMS FAQ, for consideration and
potential inclusion into a future edition of the OpenVMS FAQ.
