    Pre upgrade I got this:
    /usr/sbin/mysqld -V
    /usr/sbin/mysqld Ver 5.6.30-76.3-56 for Linux on x86_64 (Percona XtraDB Cluster (GPL), Release rel76.3, Revision aa929cb, WSREP version 25.16, wsrep_25.16)

    And post upgrade:
    /usr/sbin/mysqld Ver 5.6.30-76.3-56 for Linux on x86_64 (Percona XtraDB Cluster (GPL), Release rel76.3, Revision 0a59e2f, WSREP version 25.16, wsrep_25.16)

    It is only the revision which have changed. Is this supposed to be like that?

    Yes, that’s correct. Packages were only rebuilt with the fix so the version remained the same.

    Can you tell us what are the files changed so we can only patch them instead of running the complete rpm upgrades?
