I've changed the subject to match the 2015, 2017 and 2018 email threads.

Likely not.

:-)  A user that wants full coverage should use 1.6, apparently.

An ugly wart to be sure.

So, now that ubuntu 20.04 is out and RHEL 8 is out, and they both contain 6, 
and SLES has 6 and since we've been sitting at 1.4.4 for so long, anyone want 
to not update dejagnu to require 1.6?

I had previously approved the update to 1.5.3, but no one really wanted it as 
no one updated the requirement.  Let's have the 1.6 discussion.  I'm not only 
inclined to up to 1.6, but to actually edit it in this time.

Anyone strongly against?  Why?
