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
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?
Probably better to discuss this on epel-devel(a)lists.fp.o, but in the past it's
not been uncommon to announce an impending upgrade on the lists with some lead
time, put the new version in updates-testing with karma disabled and try to get
some reasonable testing.
Is MongoDB backwards-compatible between minor releases? If so, this should be
straightforward. If not, it gets muddier, but ultimately we are all volunteers,
so if supporting the EOL version is untenable, then upgrading is the only sane
thing to do.
