Re: PLEASE READ: BOSH-Lite stemcell broken

Dmitriy Kalinin <dkalinin@...>

we only pull stemcells in rare cases when something essential is broken
that affects everything. only diego-release is affected in this case due to

BOSH-Lite stemcell 3126 is not compatible with consul-release. This
only affects certain use cases, but it's recommended to err on the side of
caution and not use this stemcell. Use 2776 for local development, and if
you're deploying to BOSH-Lite in your CI pipelines, and you're pulling in
the latest stemcell, make sure you don't pull in 3126. If you're using
Concourse for CI, it's very simple to disable a particular version of a
