Rebase virt-what in RHEL 7.5
Last modified: 2018-04-10 12:24:17 EDT
Description of problem:
virt-what 1.18 was released today:
Currently RHEL 7.4 carries a downstream version of virt-what which
basically consists of all the upstream commits (before 2017/02)
without any version number changes:
In other words: It's a rebase in all but name.
It may be better to actually rebase virt-what instead, and since
virt-what 1.18 will be in Fedora for 3 or 4 months before RHEL 7.5
comes out it should get plenty of testing.
virt-what has an upstream stable ABI policy so there should be
no regressions by doing this.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Intended: virt-what 1.18
Some other bugs which would be fixed by the rebase:
FWIW, just a note related to s390x:
To support KVM on s390x in virt-what, we need http://git.annexia.org/?p=virt-what.git;a=commitdiff;h=89c3d9e094934405266688d2061fe1105863ca17 ... so this should be fixed by the rebase to version 1.18, too. (In the unlikely case that the rebase does not happen, we should remember to backport that patch instead)
Rich, can you please provide text for release notes? Thanks.
