Manually patch the test databases from 90 to 97

Marek Szuba requested to merge rel97_testdb into release/97

Manually patch the test databases from 90 to 97.

Use case

Test databases in ensembl-test have been stuck at schema version 90 for quite a while now. Fully automated patching can only handle a single version bump at a time (which is why recent patcher runs ended up not doing anything to ensembl-test) so it became necessary to guide it all the way to 97.


Test-DB schema will finally be up to date.

Possible Drawbacks

Might reveal problems which stayed hidden due to having been stuck at 90. Advantage for the quality of our software but very much a drawback for one's peace of mind. That said, see below.


Have you added/modified unit tests to test the changes?


If so, do the tests pass/fail?


Have you run the entire test suite and no regression was detected?

Yes, all tests still pass.
