Sure, I'm referring to the JNDI config differences between 4.0.9 and pre-4.0.9:
I don't know if that's covered by policy. My guess is that it is.

That goes back a ways, which probably means that GRAM audit has not
been tested with pre-8.0, at least not lately. Okay, that's good to

The NCSA folks already have 7.2 running in test, with no
version-related issues AFAIK. The question has come up whether we
should upgrade, however. As we all know, "if it isn't broke, don't
fix it", so we thought we'd ask here first before we did anything.
On the other hand, testing is one thing, while production is another.
I'd be inclined to recommend 8.x in production simply because of the
development history you reported above. Thanks for helping me arrive
at that conclusion.
