Removing Consul support from capi-release
As you're likely aware, in 2017 Cloud Foundry began moving away from using Consul for distributed locks and service discovery. Additionally, last year's release of cf-deployment 5.0.0 removed it as a default component of CF completely.
We have begun the process of removing Consul support from some of the jobs in capi-release, starting with the cc-uploader. This means that as of the next capi-release (1.83.0), staging will no longer work in deployments that are relying on Consul for discovery. If you're using cf-deployment (BOSH DNS) or some other mechanism for service discovery this should not cause any issues.
