Hi Folks,

We're looking into upgrading ci.centos.org to the latest LTS release (In
the 2.x series). So far this appears to be completely
backwards-compatible with the set of plugins we have enabled, though we
will continue testing over the next few days.


If you use Jenkins Job Builder in your projects, can you please test
setting 'query_plugins_info=False' in your jjb.ini file and check for
adverse effects? We are still waiting on a fix in Jenkins to allow
regular users to access the plugin list, but in the meantime it appears
that there are only a few circumstances where this makes a difference. 

If all goes well, we will schedule a time and inform the list on our
plans for the upgrade itself. As always if you have any questions,
please let us know here.
