Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 768292
mercurial 1.4 too old for opening most repositories
Last modified: 2016-01-31 21:08:43 EST
Description of problem:
Shouldn't be the latest RHEL 6.x somewhere at least in sighting distance of bleeding edge?? Every second day I stumble across RPMs which are too old to do their job. Migrating several systems from RHEL 4 and 5 I had the hope that the base distribution is current enough to avoid the use of 3rd party repos and manual rebuilds. Right now I'm disappointed.
mercurial 1.4 is too old for opening most repositories. Note that upstream 2.0 is current.
