Upstream supports only upgrade to next major version. So from 2.4 it is
supported only to 2.6.
Therefore I kept MongoDB 2.6 in EPEL7 (even two next major versions are
I'm not sure the logic of keeping el7 at 2.6 because el6 is at 2.4.
The only real upgrade path is within the major el release, anything
outside of that is likely something the user has to deal with (pull
archived intermediate releases or similar).
But MongoDB 2.6 is going to EOL (probably this week), so MongoDB in
EPEL7 will be unsupported.
How to solve this - what EPEL/Fedora guidelines says about upgrades?
Upgrade EPEL6 to EPEL7? Or keep unsupported version in EPEL7?
I would only look at upgrade paths within the major EL release so move
el7 to 2.8.x for an upgrade and then maybe in a month or two a bump to
3.0 (or what ever the path is) with decent notices etc.
