I would like to rebase sos package in RHEL7.7 to upstream 3.7 version planned to be released in Q1 2019 / before 7.7 devel freeze. Reasons:
- several features and adjutments are planned for the release that can be nontrivial to backport one after another (while the features are worth to offer to customers and CEE). So it is much easier to pack a stable upstream version than try to apply patches to downstream.
- there will be smaller "testing distance" between upstream and RHEL
- rebasing will simplify future downstream work, esp. later on when working on z-stream patches
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. rpm -q sos
technically, FailedQA since:
# rpm -q sos
sosreport (version 3.6)
Trivial fix (just the 2nd part applies to downstream):
