Summary0013904: Consistent treeinfo naming and unique versioning
DescriptionCentos 7.2 and 7.4 have same name, family and version set in the .treeinfo file, confusing Pulp to think distribution files (LiveOS, images) of these two repos are the same. Reported to pulp [1], but I believe it should be fixed in CentOS as well.

My proposal is: The name and family should be the same for all CentOS releases, while the version should differ (7.2, 7.3, 7.4). It's probably not worth changing already released versions, but unifying this for future would be nice.


Steps To ReproduceMirror both Centos 7.2 and Centos 7.4 using Pulp.

Coming from [1], on a CentOs 7.8.2003 in the hope that some useful information was added by the community towards doing something about this…

As stated in #17475, this is currently a semi blocker for me, as we are PXE booting some physical nodes with NVMe disk, and the current vmlinuz/initrd.img that pulp has cached dies with a kernel panic during boot, and thus I need pulp to be able to cache newer versions, e.g., from 7.8.2003 which I'm currently using and have confirmed to work, by totally bypassing the pulp content and pointing all my pxe templates directly at the source. However this is not really useful in the long run as it is heavily customized compared to just using the functionality straight out of Foreman/Katello.

Only the latest dot release is "suppported", you should not be using any older versions. imho.
As yum would try to upgrade any older version to the latest 7, furthermore mix and match packages accross minor version has not been tested at all. RHEL can provide long term minor version, CentOS does not, hence the same content.
