Bug Description

[Test Case]
1. Install MAAS
2. maas-import-pxe-files Will import RC images and Release images.

With the fix:
2. maas-import-pxe-files will import only Release images.

MAAS imports both the 'rc' and the 'release' images for Trusty by default.

This was a temporary measure while we were waiting for the 'release' images to be released. Now that they have been released, MAAS shouldn't import the 'rc' images by default.

The reason it was made to import both was that upon release, the "rc" images were supposed to be removed. That clearly has not happened, but is the easiest way to fix this bug. This is not an urgent change once that has happened.

Scott Moser (smoser) wrote :

rc images were never intended to be removed. nor will 'release' versions in the future.
cloud-images has 'release', 'rc', 'beta' images all available.

the general plan for cloud images has always been to keep *anything* called 'release' indefinitely. We can change that policy for maas images to be "only keep the latest N" or something, but 'N' will most certainly be greater than 1 which will expose the bug.

maas *should* only import the latest 'N' versions. I was told that 'N' was set to '1' for maas. If its not doing that then you need to fix it.

fwiw, bug 1309761 does a much better job of describing the problem.

All this fix in the merge proposal will do is delay the problem until there are 2 images named 'release' with different version numbers on them.

The idea is to buy time to SRU a fix to let a user select which image to use when there is a choice.

fwiw, I just now removed the 'rc' items from the metadata.
this will alleviate the immediate issue, but the problem is still critical and would re-show itself as soon as we need to refresh images (which is going to happen with security vulnerability or kernel update).

This is not fixed yet, MAAS needs to select the latest version of the label by default.
