Hi all!

I've just seen the announcement of Red Hat MRG 2.3 [1] including
HTCondor v7.8.8. I'm a little bit confused with the HTCondor version
numbers, the last stable HTCondor version is 7.8.7 however Red Hat is
talking about HTCondor 7.8.8 version.

Is maintaining Red Hat a forked version of HTCondor?

Many thanks!

The answer to your question is no.

The MRG 2.3 condor package is condor-7.8.8-0.4.1, which indicates a pre-7.8.8 version.

FYI - the HTCondor Project maintains a stable and development stream. Currently stable is V7_8-branch and development is master (7.9). The 7.8.7 release is branched at V7_8_7-branch and tagged at V7_8_7. The tip of V7_8-branch is 7.8.8, until it is branched at V7_8_8-branch for release at which time V7_8-branch becomes 7.8.9.


$ git diff --stat V7_8_7..V7_8-branch | tail -n1
 75 files changed, 2001 insertions(+), 3944 deletions(-)

which indicates changes on the stable series since the 7.8.7 release.
