CURRENT_SERIES_RECOMMENDATION : Content is from recommended image specification based on latest base image patch or update of the current series. For example, a host’s current desired base image is 8.0. Recommendation engine will look into any recommendable image specification with 8.0 series base images available at depot manager and try to recommend the highest version within 8.0 series if possible. Let’s say in this example, depot manager has 8.0 patch a and 8.0 update 1 base images. Recommendation engine would first validate all possible images based on 8.0 update 1. If it finds a valid one, it will store the recommended content with that series. This enum value will point to that stored recommended image content. Recommendations can be generated using {@link:}.
