Description Karel Volný 2010-08-11 15:05:23 UTC
Description of problem:
I refer to bug #600353 comment #12 -

"When I have different syntax of config file, package names or even
command itself changed after long period of time I want only exclude eg.
the latest release. When the test runs perfectly on RHEL3-5 I want to
exclude only the RHEL6"

I guess this would be better resolved by allowing to specify a range of releases - otherwise, in the abovementioned case, the test would have to be modified in the future to exclude RHEL-7, then RHEL-8 etc.

from the mailing list:

> everything from RHEL-3 to RHEL-5", "run on everything until RHEL-5 (not on
> RHEL-6 and above)", "run on everything from RHEL-5.5 (also on RHEL-6 and 
> above)", "run on every RHEL-4.x from RHEL-4.6 and on everything 
> from RHEL-5.3" etc.
> running a test automatically on RHEL-7 is not desired if we know 
> that the feature got removed in RHEL-6 and it will never (except 
> for "never say never") make it back again

Test metadata should be managed outside of Beaker.
