Description Jason DeTiberus 2013-07-24 16:01:34 EDT
Description of problem:
The wordpress quickstart is currently using version 3.4.2, current stable release is 3.5.2

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install wordpress from quickstart
2. See prompt to upgrade

Actual results:
Upgrade is needed after installing from quickstart

Expected results:
Upgrade should not be needed

Additional info:
3.5.2 was a security and maintenance release, without upgrading, some users will be running vulnerable versions of wordpress after an initial install.

Additionally, a ways back I thought a mechanism had been put in place to always pull the latest stable version from upstream.  This clearly is not happening as the latest stable version is 3.6

Fixed in https://github.com/openshift/wordpress-example/pull/37

QE, to test, please run 

  rhc create-app <name> php-5 mysql-5 --from-code=git://github.com/smarterclayton/wordpress-example.git#wordpress36

Once it's validated I will merge this request into master and update the quickstart link.

Tested on devenv_3762, the wordpress application can work correctly, so verify this bug, thanks.
Comment 4 Yujie Zhang 2013-09-10 02:35:06 EDT
The version of the wordpress is 3.6 now.
Comment 5 John Poelstra 2013-09-10 11:20:52 EDT
Can you explain how this works? 

It looks like we are still maintaining our own repo of the upstream code in github.  

I thought the solution described to me was that "at each install we were going to automatically pull the latest stable version from upstream?"
Comment 6 Clayton Coleman 2013-09-10 11:25:36 EDT
That's Drupal.  Eventually it'd be nice to do this for wordpress - but it's a story.  It's still a manual process.
Comment 7 John Poelstra 2013-09-10 11:30:29 EDT
I'd be willing to volunteer to try and help maintain the WordPress quickstart so it stays current, if someone could give me some pointers. 

I use the term "maintain" extremely loosely (I'm not a PHP coder)-- I'd watch for stable version of WordPress to change and then drop in latest version as a pull request.  To do that I'd probably need a few minutes on the phone w/ someone to understand file layout and basic git commands to do the right thing.  

Let me know.
Comment 8 Clayton Coleman 2013-09-10 11:32:47 EDT
That's fine - the process is usually straight forward (although it could be more so)
Comment 9 John Poelstra 2013-09-19 12:56:06 EDT
FWIW, 3.6.1 came out last week.
