            Bug ID: 257309
           Summary: sysutils/beats7 7.13 compatibility to non-Elastic
                    distributions
           Product: Ports & Packages
           Version: Latest
          Hardware: amd64
                OS: Any
            Status: New
          Severity: Affects Some People
          Priority: ---
         Component: Individual Port(s)

Version 7.13 broke compatibility with 7.10 or earlier open source distributions
of Elasticsearch [1]. To point at the elephant, 7.13 doesn't connect to AWS
ElasticSearch any more. This is a breaking change on a minor version with no
warning to users, not even the standard message in UPDATING as far as I can
tell. Not nice.

That means that some users of quarterly pkgs will soon find that beats7 isn't
working any more with no documented workaround and no warning. Are there any
plans to mitigate this?
