I have newish Extreme switches (X440-G2 running XOS 22.4) and they work
fine with rancid. The only problem I have is sometimes the commands show
up in the output, eg:

  #Slot 1: state
+ show configuration
+ #
  # Module devmgr configuration.

I am using rancid 2.3.8 (yes, I know, I'm still running Debian jessie)
but I grabbed the most recent xrancid that wasn't modularised ($Id:
xrancid.in 3018 2015-01-11 05:51:49Z heas $) and it didn't fix the
problem. I didn't think about upgrading clogin though. Is that likely to
help or should I just look at upgrading rancid entirely to get the
modular xrancid with xlogin?
