Please could you create a
2.7 track with a guard-rail regex of
MAAS releases a new major version (2.5, 2.6, 2.7…) approximately every 6 months, and the snap is maintained by the upstream at Canonical (we are looking to use it as the primary delivery mechanism soon). We already maintain parallel versions of MAAS and since we’re shipped in the Ubuntu archive, older versions of MAAS are maintained as per Ubuntu’s support policy.
Additionally, MAAS can “bootstrap” one of the machines under it’s control to become a “rack controller” which is part of the control plane, currently it installs the snap from
latest/stable channel. We want to use tracks so that each MAAS region controller can install the corresponding major version of the snap for the rack controller.
