Description Ruediger Landmann 2011-09-29 03:06:00 UTC
Description of problem:
Publican 2.8 does not check for compatibility when it builds content packaged by older, incompatible versions

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Package a book using an obsolete (<2.5) version of Publican
2. Attempt to build the book from the package in an environment that has Publican 2.8 installed
Actual results:
Package gets built

Expected results:
Build should fail with a message that the package was created with an obsolete version of Publican

Comment 1 Jeff Fearn 🐞 2011-10-04 04:25:47 UTC
Re-added API check. Added extra check for post-commit DB hook, will not run check if DB update hooks are missing.

Committed revision 1903.

Comment 2 Jared MORGAN 2012-05-09 01:21:49 UTC
For verification, can we get older versions of publican from brew?

Would the verification steps be:


* ensure brew has publican v2.8 installed (which it should by default, yes?)

1. yum downgrade publican (to revert to non-testing version). 
2. Uninstall publican. 
3. Install old publican package. 
4. Test fix.
