5.x repos do not separate elastic programs anymore


#1

I didn't know where to write so I chose the ES section, sorry if it's not strictly repated

The repositories you expose are no more separated: the kibana-5.x repository contains kibana but even elasticsearch, logstash and beats. The same happens for your other repos, such as logstash-5.x and elasticsearch-5.x.

This made me inadvertently upgrade the entire stack even if I intended to follow the suggested steps: Elasticsearch and Kibana, then Logstash (since old logstash is compatible with the new ES)

While is certainly my fault to not have double checked my "yum update", I want to point out that:

  1. this is very different from what was before, when every program and version had a proper separated repository
  2. this is not documented on the breaking changes pages, or at least I couldn't find it
  3. this is illogical
  4. people will likely downtime their infrastructure much more than necessary

In conclusion, I really don't understand this change, can somebody explain it to me?

Thanks,
Daniele
