Description Guangze Bai 2012-04-25 04:23:06 EDT
Description of problem:

Current v7 won't check the version of /etc/v7.xml, so if upgrade v7 from an old release, e.g. from 1.4 to 1.5, the old v7.xml still there.

# rpm -q v7

# yes y | v7 clean all
# v7 plan

# cat /etc/v7.xml
<?xml version='1.0' encoding='UTF-8'?>
<?xml-stylesheet href="/v7/css/env.css" type="text/css"?>
<v7-environment v7-version='1.4' v7-release='38'>
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Expected results:
/etc/v7.xml get sync-ed matching the current v7 version
Comment 1 Greg Nichols 2012-04-25 08:59:58 EDT
This is intentional, as it preserves configuration settings across upgrades.
Comment 2 Rob Landry 2012-04-25 10:53:47 EDT
For a later release should we consider submitting the results and refreshing, retaining the applicable settings but updating to 1.6?  After a 1.4->1.5 upgrade there will be updates to the xml which are unique to 1.5 so it's not 100% accurate to call it 1.4 anymore especially if any tests are run.
Comment 3 Greg Nichols 2012-04-25 11:49:41 EDT
For clarification:

The version reported by "v7 version" does not come from this file.  Also the results will be marked with the installed version, not that shown in /etc/v7.xml.

The version that appears in /etc/v7.xml is just the version that created the file.
