v7 does not check v7.xml version
Last modified: 2015-02-08 16:38:02 EST
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):
/etc/v7.xml get sync-ed matching the current v7 version
This is intentional, as it preserves configuration settings across upgrades.
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.
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.
