This happens on all collections I have tried (vms, clusters, permissions...).

Seems like an infra issue/decision. Moving to infra to decide.
Comment 2 Juan Hernández 2017-06-30 05:27:17 EDT
I agree this should be improved. Ori, can you take a look?
Comment 3 Red Hat Bugzilla Rules Engine 2017-06-30 05:27:22 EDT
Target release should be placed once a package build is known to fix a issue. Since this bug is not modified, the target version has been reset. Please use target milestone to plan a fix for a oVirt release.
