      • 13.2.7 has a missing backport (see I build ceph-13.2.7-0.1 in koji with the missing patch. 13.2.8 includes the backport and should come out any day now.
      • 14.2.5 is imminent, which should be a nautilus release candidate for us. I don't foresee any upgrades before xmas, so we can profit from other users' experience with this release.
      • Bluestore compression: pool specific compression options are still not loaded at osd boot time, so only the global cluster options are usable. The backport of to mimic/nautilus is needed, but its quite non-trivial.
