Subject RE: [PROPOSAL] drop old upgrade code
Date Tue, 21 Jul 2015 16:01:00 GMT

1. Technically speaking, Apache Cloudstack never had version less than 4.0. But even if they
are considered they would be EOL'd at some point.
2. At some point the feature set disparity between version will make it really complex to
have direct upgrade paths.
3. As Daan mentioned, 2.x and 3.x users can still upgrade to 4.6+ using a multi-step approach
(upgrading to 4.3/4.5 first).

As a user, I'd say +1.

I understand the concerns, but as long as there is a workaround I'm fine
with it.

Would be great though if the upgrade scripts abort if it notices an upgrade
from an unsupported versions.
