Known issues

While upgrading from TeamForge 17.1 (or earlier) to TeamForge 17.8 Update 1 on a new hardware, Gerrit initialization fails and the following error shows up: Caught exception while trying to start service 'gerrit': Gerrit /usr/sbin/ has failed with error code 15. This is a known issue. As a workaround, run the command teamforge apply-permissions after teamforge provision.
