Porting Help
------------

We've published a porting guide at
https://docs.ansible.com/ansible/devel/porting_guides/porting_guide_2.7.html to
help migrate your content to 2.7.
If you discover any errors or if any of your working playbooks break when you
upgrade to 2.7.11, please use the following link to report the regression:

In your issue, be sure to mention the Ansible version that works and the one
that doesn't.

Thanks!
