Thanks, the upgrade went fine and I've no known issues. The only warning 
I have is about too many PGs per OSD which is my fault not ceph's. I 
trust that doesn't count as a reason not to proceed to 13.2.2?

Totally, I get that this happens from time to time but once a bad 
release is known why not just delete the affected packages from the 
official repos? That seems to me to be a really easy step to take 
especially if release announcements haven't been sent, docs.ceph.com 
hasn't been updated yet etc. I reposync --newest-only the RPMs from the 
official repos to my own then update my ceph hosts from there which is 
how I ended up with 12.2.9.
