First, when this RFE is evaluated, please indicate which subcomponent is most
appropriate for repository issues.

The RFE...

So as to enable users browsing v3 package repositories via web browsers to see
only the most recent versions of packages by default, the repository instances
should be updated to 2.3. In the catalog listing of v3, only the most recent
version of each package is listed by default. Thereby greatly simplifying the
user experience. If users want to see older versions, they can select the Show
All Versions option.

This improvement will not only help simplify display of the dev/ and contrib/
repos, but will also address release/ in that there are currently ~3 versions of
each package in the v3 release/ repo.

Compare this 2.2 and earlier-based listing here:


With this 2.3 and beyond-based listing:


All of the repos managed by the SWI repo hosting team have been running 2.3 for
more than a month without issues.

Please use update_center subcomponent for repository related issues.

Assigning to Terena - we still need to work out the optimal timeline for
repository runtime upgrade which will minimize server downtime given that some
QA cycles are apparently still in progress and we are releasing v3 FCS on 12/10.

Bulk update to change fix version to "not determined" for all issues still open but with a fix version for a released version.
