Just the usual upgrade process as per the manual.

Ok. The diagram seems to suggest that 2.4.0 would be first maintenance release.


So I will be able to make an inplace upgrade from 2.4.0 to 2.4.1 when it is released.
i.e. no re-installation of OS or reformatting OSTs when I move to 2.4.1.
Just upgrading the Lustre Kernel and Lustre Packages to 2.4.1 should do. right?

The 2.4.0 release is one of the 6-month feature releases.
2.4.1 will be the first maintenance release on that branch.
